The Southeast Michigan Community Alliance (SEMCA)

What is the Southeast Michigan Community Alliance (SEMCA)?

SEMCA is a 501(c)3 non-profit that administers various human services programs in out-Wayne County and Monroe County.

Since 1996, the Southeast Michigan Community Alliance (SEMCA) has been a leader in talent development programs. SEMCA partners with various community organizations and contractors to serve residents in Wayne and Monroe counties, excluding the city of Detroit.

SEMCA provides administrative services to Wayne County Head Start and the Workforce Intelligence Network (WIN).

SEMCA is committed to its vision for a competitive economy that is sustained by private and public partnerships that develop a productive workforce.

As a result of our high performance standards and dedication to the residents of southeast Michigan, SEMCA is accredited by the Council on Accreditation, the first nonprofit organization in the country to receive such an accreditation from the Council under its newest network standards.

SEMCA is governed by two volunteer boards that fulfill specific functions of the organization: the Workforce Development Board and the Southeast Governmental Alliance (SEGA).

Workforce Development Board

This board maintains an effective workforce development system that is responsive to the needs of employers and residents, thereby creating a stronger Michigan economy. Charlotte (Charlie) Mahoney is the Board chair. Click here for a list of our current Workforce Development Board Members.
