Now that the Grandview Commons condominium development is making real world progress after the final approval of the development’s site plan last month, the time has come for Faith in Action to pack up and move to a new location.
FIA Director Nancy Paul announced this week that she and her staff will be calling 7275 W. Joy Road home. The property at that address is a commercial warehouse similar to the space that FIA will be operating in until the beginning of next month.
“Our last day at our current location will be August 3,” Paul said. “Our current space is slated for demolition for the new Grand St. condos, so we’re happy to have found a new, bigger, exciting place.
FIA has been considering other locations after it became clear that their 7931 Grand Street location’s days were numbered.
The group will resume their work in their new location on Wednesday, August 17.
FIA has been helping in the community since the mid-1980s. Their main location was in Chelsea until 2008, when they began renting space in Dexter to provide “on-site” response to the considerable need that exists in the Dexter area.
Their local presence in Dexter came just in time for the Great Recession and the Dexter tornado in 2012.
Those who need help, or those who would like to be a helper, can call FIA at 734-426-7002.
