Goodwill Industries of Kentucky 150

LOUISVILLE, KY – Goodwill Industries of Kentucky and its partners will host an expungement clinic on Monday, April 17, 2023 at 50 University Drive, Manchester, KY 40962, on Eastern Kentucky University’s Manchester campus.

Expungement is the process by which a record of criminal conviction is sealed from state or federal record. Today, there are 10s of thousands of individuals behind bars in Kentucky. When they’re released, many will face challenges when reintegrating into their everyday lives, which includes finding reliable employment.

The event will be from 10:00 A.M. till Noon and will be capped at 50 participants. Walk-ins will be welcomed on a first-come, first-served basis. Interested individuals can register at

To provide a second chance for this population, Goodwill partnered with the Legal Aid Society, Legal Aid of the Bluegrass, AppalReD Legal Aid and Kentucky Legal Aid to offer expungement clinics, where individuals can receive free legal advice from professionals from the aforementioned agencies. If participants qualify for expungement, they are guided through the process free of charge. Goodwill covers any fees for the expungement up to $600 per participant.

In 2022, Goodwill and its partners expunged more than 2,500 criminal records statewide, more than tripling its number of expungements granted in 2021.

Goodwill will be hosting clinics throughout the commonwealth in 2023. For more information about expungement or to register for an upcoming clinic, visit
