Grant Associates Launches Operations in Detroit

In July 2012, Grant Associates launched Detroit Employment Solutions, a Michigan Works! Agency, that serves individuals looking for training and/or work. The program is based on a business-driven model that has been successfully implemented by Grant Associates in other cities. With three full-service career centers and a mobile unit, in addition to job placement and advancement, the program provides case management and access to the education, training and support services people need to succeed. To maximize results, we leverage Detroit’s rich array of community resources, collaborating with economic development agencies, education and training providers, and community-based and faith-based organizations. The center expects to place over 2,000 people in its first year of operations, and currently works with businesses in all sectors.
