NDIANAPOLIS (February 5, 2008) - The temporary location of the Vincennes WorkOne office is up and running, according to officials from the Indiana Department of Workforce Development and WorkOne.
Members of the public seeking career or training assistance should call 812-830-9295 and 812-830-9291. Persons with questions on their unemployment insurance benefits should continue to contact the Indianapolis call center at 1-800-891-6499 - menu option #3.
The Vincennes office was relocated yesterday (Monday, February 4, 2008) to the FSSA Southwest Training Center at 604 Quail Run Rd in Vincennes as a result of a fire Friday night which destroyed the WorkOne office at 310 N. 2nd Street. The Training Center is located across the street from Lincoln High School. The Quail Run Rd. facility will be used for the next two weeks.
According to Dale Wengler, Deputy Commissioner of Policy and Field Operations, "we are open to serve the public. Twenty-five computers and two laser printers are up and running, eight phones are now being used by staff members, outside signage has been posted, and office supplies have been delivered. We are ready to go."
Wengler said the Department of Workforce Development and regional workforce officials are continuing their search for a permanent location.
"We have had tremendous community support as several businesses have donated supplies. The goodwill and support from the community has been outstanding," Wengler said.
