Vincennes WorkOne Update

INDIANAPOLIS (February 4, 2008) -- Career, employment, and training services for Vincennes area residents will be temporarily relocated to the FSSA Southwest Training Center at 604 Quail Run Rd in Vincennes as a result of a fire Friday night which destroyed the Vincennes WorkOne office at 310 N. 2nd Street. The Training Center is located across the street from Lincoln High School.

Staff will begin setting up operations today (Monday, February 4, 2008) to assist residents in need of any WorkOne services, with limited services expected later this afternoon. In addition, until a more permanent location is found and services fully restored, residents are urged to go to the Evansville WorkOne office or other WorkOne offices in the region. Local citizens with unemployment insurance-related questions can call the Department of Workforce Development's call center in Indianapolis at 1-800-891-6499 - press menu option #3.  

"We are doing everything we can to continue to offer a full range of services to area residents," said Teresa Voors, commissioner of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. "Between the other WorkOne locations in the region, our Indianapolis call center, and our efforts to establish temporary operations in Vincennes, we believe we can accommodate the needs of any citizens needing services. In the meantime, we ask all citizens to be patient until we can get our full array of services operational."
