In partnership with CVS Health, STEP’s Dearborn Heights Thrift Store has been transformed into a mini CVS store where training participants learn every aspect of working for CVS Health and retail in general. Each participant puts into practice what they’ve learned by working at the STEP Thrift Store and a work trial program at a CVS store. Graduates are given priority for hire at CVS stores, and gain skills and knowledge that they can carry with them anywhere.

“SVRC Industries, Inc. marketplace project in downtown Saginaw has had an incredible economic impact on the City. The project took a building that had been vacant in downtown for over eight years and breathed new life into it. This investment of $22 million spurred economic development and growth, nurturing small businesses and many entrepreneurs in the market. The building has created a community gathering space, increased access to fresh fruits and vegetables in a food dessert, and provided additional space for behavioral health treatment centers, as well as office space to both entrepreneurs and established businesses. One hundred and fifty jobs were either retained or created by the SVRC Marketplace. Their organization has a great sense of civic stewardship and responsibility; we are grateful to have SVRC Industries in the Great Lakes Bay Region.”
