DETROIT (WWJ) – A Detroit-based human service and workforce training organization is downsizing, putting more than 100 workers out of jobs.

One-hundred-twenty workers at Focus: HOPE will be laid off in early March, according to a Jan. 5 filing with the state.

The non-profit says 110 general assemblers and ten Hi-Lo drivers will be out of work come March 5.

Crain’s Detroit Business says Focus: HOPE has struggled financially the past couple of years in the wake of lost federal, state and local funding for workforce training.
