Bigger for sure means better for the Hamtramck branch of the Arab American Chaldean Council.
On Monday (Nov. 30) the ACC celebrated the official opening of the organization’s newest building, located at 9010 Jos. Campau.
The relocated Hamtramck office, now in the Hamtramck Town Center at the intersection of Holbrook, is larger than the previous site and features a new state-of-the-art computer lab. The added space and computers will allow the multi-faceted organization to provide even more services than it already does. Specifically, the inclusion of a GED assistance program has been made possible by the additional workspace.
Taha Alhumdi, Program Coordinator for the ACC, is pleased with the organization’s new location and capabilities. He says the transition from the old office to this one will provide greater levels of assistance to the overall community.
“The convenience of the location, the amount of parking, and the workspace inside will help us increase the number of customers we can serve,” he says. “Our programs will be able to accommodate people that other programs cannot.”
According to the organization’s website, the ACC office offers several different programs and services to all members of the community. Among those included are the Southeast Michigan Community Alliance (SEMCA) Job Education and Training (JET) program, Women Infant and Children (WIC) Nutrition Program, DHS social services, and youth and community programs.
