YPSILANTI, MI – Michigan Works! Southeast announced plans to move their Ypsilanti office to a new location this summer.
The workforce development agency will relocate to 1201 E Ellsworth Road, near Stone School Road in the Ann Arbor city limits. The new facility is centrally located within Washtenaw County and will offer more space for career seekers. A bus stop is located directly in front of the building, offering easier access for transit users, among many more infrastructure improvements.
“This was not a decision we made lightly,” said Shamar Herron, Executive Director of Michigan Works! Southeast. “Our current location has experienced many maintenance issues and struggles to accommodate the volume of customers we receive each day. We owe it to our community to provide a space that is safe, accessible, and accommodates the needs of our visitors,” said Herron.
Additionally, Michigan Works! Southeast is working to establish access points in collaboration with faith groups, libraries, and community centers. “In our current situation, people are coming to us. This move allows us to enhance the services we provide,” said Shamar Herron.
Michigan Works! Southeast will continue to operate from their Harriet St. location until mid-June. Phone and fax numbers will remain the same after the move and the center can be reached at (734) 714-9814 or www.mwse.org/contact-us.
Michigan Works! Southeast connects employers and job seekers to a better future in Hillsdale, Jackson, Lenawee, Livingston, and Washtenaw Counties as part of a statewide Michigan Works! system.
