Angela Pilarski of Farmington Hills has joined the staff of Lutheran Social Services of Michigan as director of the Wayne County Family Center, a shelter for homeless families in Westland, MI. Pilarski previously worked at The Guidance Center in Southgate, MI, where she managed the Head Start program. She holds a bachelor’s degree and a Master of Science in Administration degree from Central Michigan University. The Wayne County Family Center provides temporary housing for 24 homeless families. It is one of only a few Michigan shelters where family members can stay together in a single room. Families can live at the center for up to two years. Residents receive meals; counseling to help with financial management, job search and housing; child care and transportation assistance. The center is funded by Wayne County and managed by Lutheran Social Services of Michigan.
