Mayor Luke Ravenstahl joined City Councilwoman Theresa Kail-Smith to officially open the West End Works (WEW), a neighborhood employment and public computer center. One of four public computer centers operated through a grant from the Broadband Technology Opportunities Project of the National Telecommunications Information Agency, West End Works is equipped with laptop computers, printers and high speed internet access. 

The public computer center and employment program is located in the Emanuel United Methodist Church at 825 Lorenz Avenue where residents can drop in Monday thru Friday to use computers or get help finding work.  Weekend hours will begin in 2013.

Employment services provided at the West End Works include job searching, resume help, and job fairs. Many local employers have already sponsored recruitment and training sessions at WEW including UPMC, Comcast, AARP, and others.
