The charity has also a successful Contract Services division which creates jobs by contracting with businesses and government to provide a wide range of commercial services including custodial, grounds keeping, packing and shipping and administrative support. Some of the businesses include Bay County Department Of Transportation, Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, Florida Lottery and the Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission.  Approximately 75 percent of the employed staff in the Contract Services division have verifiable disabilities.

All of these important community service programs are funded through the sale of donated goods at the retail stores.  Goodwill Industries International collectively reports $4.4 billion revenues and 82% of those revenues go directly toward supporting and growing community-based programs and services.
