Workforce Re-Employment Center Opens in Lynnwood

On September 18th, the City of Lynnwood welcomed the official opening of the Workforce Re-Employment Center at WorkSource; an effort that aligns with the City’s vision to be a regional model for a sustainable, vibrant community by providing services that meet the needs of our citizens and businesses.

The Center will provide services to individuals specifically impacted by the downsizing of the aerospace industry, including employees, contractors, supply chain workers and displaced homemakers.  The focus of the Center is to help bridge the gap between those affected by layoffs and the available resources. 

Workforce Snohomish received $2 million in funding to open the Center from a Department of Labor National Dislocated Worker Grant and a State Employment Security Department Rapid Response grant. These funds along with existing Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funds will help assist individuals transition into another employment opportunity in the community.

The new facility is located at 18009 Hwy 99, Suite A, Lynnwood, WA 98037. For more information, visit

Lynnwood congratulates WorkSource on this innovative approach to help those in need.
