800 West Broadway
800 West Broadway is a unique collaborative opening doors to employment, education and healthy living. The State of Minnesota is moving the current North Minneapolis WorkForce Center located at 1200 Plymouth Avenue N, Minneapolis to a more centrally located, larger space at 800 West Broadway Avenue, Minneapolis in late 2016. This new location will be easier for customers to access by public transportation, but with the increased space allows for an innovative partnership with Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) and NorthPoint Health & Wellness to provide benefits such as:
- Opportunities for youth and adults to complete high school diploma and GED.
- Medical, behavioral health and dental services.
- New retail in a prime location on West Broadway.
