Central Area Michigan Works! Consortium (CAMWC) has made the difficult decision to close the Ionia County Michigan Works! Service Center in Ionia, effective June 30, 2014.
The steady decrease of federal funds to operate service centers, combined with the decrease in traffic into the Ionia service center has led to this decision. CAMWC is in discussion with Department of Human Services (DHS) about housing the PATH program at the Ionia DHS facility. “We are exploring every option to keep services within the community,” states Janet Bloomfield, Vice- President for Employment and Training with CAMWC. “A fax machine will be placed at the EightCAP Office in downtown Ionia for job seekers to fax unemployment documents. An 800 # is in place that will connect the caller with the Michigan Works! Service Center in Greenville without incurring long distance charges. Our services will continue to be available to all Ionia County employers and residents who are in need of assistance Monday through Friday through our Business Services Manager, and our Michigan Works! Service Center staff, located in Greenville,” she concludes.
The current Ionia Service Center site will remain open through Monday, June 30th and then close permanently. After that, Employers requiring Business Services should contact Kathy Jo VanderLaan, Business Services Manager, at 616-754-9315, ext. 3360 or contact the Greenville Michigan Works! Service Center. Job Seekers needing assistance should call the Michigan Works Service Center in Greenville, located at 114 S. Greenville West Dr. at 616-754-3611, 800-676-3600, or TTY:711. Job posting and job search is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at www.mitalent.org
