Resource and job fair being hosted in Benton Harbor

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan Works! will be hosting a resource and job fair on November 17 for Southwest Michigan residents who are looking for career, education, and training opportunities.

This fair will be hosted at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Benton Harbor, 214 E. Britain Avenue, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Employers, educators, and social service organizations will be in attendance to offer residents opportunities to receive interviews, training resources, education, and adult education services.

“We strongly believe that we couldn’t have picked a more important time for an event like this. We’re here to help individuals in Southwest Michigan get back to work, get individuals enrolled in training, connect them to education, and knock down any barriers that stand in their way, and this event will do all of that at one time,” said Lily Brewer, Executive Director of Michigan Works! Berrien, Cass, Van Buren.

The fair will also have services that will help individuals in need of assistance with clearing criminal backgrounds.

“Our office has been reaching out with information on expungements, and we are finding a number of residents who want additional services like job training and help making connections with employers. We believe this event can help address those issues and more. It will make us a stronger and safer community,” said Berrien County Prosecutor Steve Pierangeli.
