MOORHEAD, M.N. ( Valley News Live ) - The Village Family Service Center is looking to expand its services in south Moorhead.

Staff members from the Village and officials from the City of Moorhead break ground on the new location set to open by the fall of 2019

Officials from the city of Moorhead and representatives from The Village were on hand Monday afternoon to break ground at the new location at 815 37th avenue south.

The ground breaking marks the move from their current location on 8th St.

When completed the new offices will provide 7,852 square feet of space with an additional 2,190 sq feet that can be utilized as needed.

Division Director Joni Medenwald oversees this location and says the space will allow for more in-depth outpatient and Mental health therapy.

“We're busting at the seams at our current location. With the expansion and the build we'll be able to double if not triple our size of providers and the services that we're able to offer," said Medenwald.

The new location is set to be completed by the fall of 2019.
