Fulton County Monday announced it will centralize its comprehensive career services program later this week by concentrating its efforts in two locations rather than six. Fulton County’s workforce development offices will now be located solely at the North Fulton and South Fulton Career Centers.

The board of commissioners during the 2014 budget process tasked the county manager with identifying opportunities for efficiencies and areas where there are duplications of services. This centralization of workforce development services will prevent duplication of services between the county and the city of Atlanta.

If a resident resides within the city of Atlanta and is in need of these types of services, he or she should seek those services through the city’s workforce development agency located at 818 Pollard Blvd., Atlanta. The change will go into effect between Wednesday and Friday. The four workforce development locations that will be affected are:

o Central Resource Center, Atlanta/Fulton County Public Library, Wednesday

o Neighborhood Union Workforce Center, Friday

o Adamsville Regional Health Center, Friday

o Youth Employment Services, Oakhill Child, Adolescent and Family Services, Friday

If a resident was a former intensive service customer at one of these locations, they will still have access to comprehensive career services at the following locations:

o North Fulton Career Center, 7741 Roswell Road, Suite 205, Sandy Springs, (404) 613-4480

o South Fulton Career Center, 5710 Stonewall Tell Road, Suite 160, College Park, (770) 306-5202
