Meridian Services’ Case Management Department and Zenith Services moved into the new building in Hopkins, in March.  In recent years, Meridian’s Case Management Department has grown substantially as we have actively and successfully sought to build our caseloads.  As a result the department has grown from six Case Managers, when we first moved into the current Metro Office building, to over fifty.  We have struggled for some time trying to find space for every Case Manager, including the necessity of renting additional space in an office complex near the Metro Office.  Moving to the new building in Hopkins brings the entire department together in one location and provides plenty of space for additional growth in the future.  Similarly, Zenith Services had outgrown its facility in Osseo.  The new building will provide the vocational program with the space it needs to serve the current clients better and makes it possible significantly to for the program to grow in the future.
