BENTON HARBOR, Mich. — Michigan Works! brought their resources to residents Wednesday – trying to remove any barriers in their career or education.
“If you’re looking to get employed, we have someone; you want to get your GED, we have someone,” said Di’Andre Hureskin, Lead Career Development Specialist at Michigan Works!
It’s more than a chance to find a job, but also to wipe your slate clean.
“It really is a dynamic approach to reducing barriers in the community,” said Steve Pierangeli, Berrien County Prosecutor.
One trip could have visitors walking out with a clean record and new job.
“The new expungement law that went into effect this year greatly expands what is eligible for expungement, Michigan Works! is here with their own attorney, I have paperwork here, it can be intimidating but it really is a simple process and it’s worth it,” said Pierangeli.
If you couldn’t make it, Michigan Works! is still providing assistance by calling 800-285-WORKS.
