Fulton County will centralize its comprehensive career services program by concentrating their 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, it is recommended that those services be sought through the City’s Workforce Development Agency located at 818 Pollard Blvd SW, Atlanta, GA 30315. The change will go into effect on February 14 and February 21 of this year.  The four Workforce Development locations that will be affected are:

• Central Resource Center  (February 19)
 Atlanta/Fulton County Public Library

• Neighborhood Union Workforce Center (February 21, 2014)

• Adamsville Regional Health Center  ( February 21, 2014)
• Youth Employment Services (February 21,2014)
   Oakhill Child, Adolescent and Family Services

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 two locations listed below:
