GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. – VSA arts Michigan-Grand Rapids, a non-profit organization supporting individuals with disabilities through art education, closed on a lease for a 1500 SF suite in the Old North Boundary building on North Monroe in an attempt to accommodate growing demand for its services. Effective April 1 the organization intends to operate from its new location at 1140 Monroe Avenue NW in a former factory transformed into an urban retail-office complex known as Old North Boundary.
In recent years VSA had continuously seen growth within its programs and initiatives, which recently brought them to a head with cutting programs and staff, or moving into a larger space.
“We can’t imagine cutting programs. That is not an option,” notes Michele Suchovsky, Executive Director of the local VSA chapter.
