The building is scheduled for
completion in July 1986, accord-
ing to JVS Executive Director Al
Ascher. It will replace the agen-
cy's Kristen Towers facility but
not the JVS workshop and ad-
ministrative offices in Detroit.
That building, located on Wood-
ward just south of the Detroit
Medical Center, will continue to
serve JVS clients and staff, al-
though Ascher said same ad.
ministrative personnel will be
shifted from the Detroit 'office to
the new building.
"Because 55-60 percent of our
people are in Oakland County,
this will better serve our needs,"
Ascher said of the new workshop.
"We serve many people in the Oak
Park area and also have a high
concentration of clients who live
in Southfield. While we do have
some people who live in the far
northwest part of town, overall,
the Southfield location seemed
like the best way to go."
Some 200 retarded and emo-
tionally or physically disabled
clients currently use the sheltered
workshop each day. They perform
piece work or take part in light
assembly jobs farmed out to JVS
from local companies. The agency
also serves members of the non-
disabled community, offering
services such as job training,
counseling and aid to displaced
homemakers, retirees, recent
immigrants and others.
The new building should allow
JVS to extend its programs for
the non-disabled, Ascher said. In
addition to administrative offices,
the sheltered workshop and
specially-designed classrooms for
the handicapped, the 65,000-
square-foot facility will house an
occupational resource center,
group counseling and evaluation
rooms, physical fitness and physi-
cal therapy rooms , and a medical
Ascher pointed out that the ex-
panded services area necessity in
light of the 25 percent annual in-
crease in clients the JVS has been
serving since the mid-1970s.
"Thiafacility will be able to serve
between 3,000 and 4,000 persons
over the course of a year," the
executive director said.
While the workshop will be able
to handle more clients, Ascher,
who notes that the agency "has
just about saturated its market"
and sees a slower growth rate for
JVS in the future, hopes the new
facility will , provide the agency
with a qualitative edge, rather
than a quantitative one.
"While we continually moder-
nize the Kristen Towers work-
shop, we are limited in terms of
the equipment we can use. The
equipment must fit through a
small door and be transported by
elevator to the sixth floor.
"Because the new , facility is
being built specifically for JVS, a
much greater variety of equip•
ment can be brought in and thai
will increase the agency's train•
