Macomb-Oakland Regional Center, Inc. (MORC) is pleased to announce the opening of two new Oakland County offices on Monday, August 2nd.
MORC’s North Oakland office is located at 6770 Dixie Highway, Suite 200 in Clarkston and its South Oakland office is located at 29200 Northwestern Highway, Suite 110 in Southfield. MORC’s previous office in Auburn Hills closed on July 31, 2021.
“In order to better serve our community, we wanted to cover more of the county by having two Oakland County offices,” says MORC CEO Dennis Bott. “The locations of the new offices in Clarkston and Southfield allow the vast majority of those we serve in Oakland County to be only 15 to 20 minutes from of one of our locations.”
To reach either of MORC’s Oakland County offices, individuals can call 248-276-8000.
