SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A simple move across the city could bring San Diegans more help when it comes to finding a job.

Monday, the San Diego Workforce Partnership relocated from its longtime office in City Heights to a new headquarters in Kearny Mesa. The partnership expects to save $320,000 in rent this year and $6 million over the next fifteen years.

"That's more staffing, more services for job seekers, and more outreach to employers," said Peter Callstrom, the Workforce Partnership's CEO. "To save money is the big deal because we want to keep costs low and fund programs."

San Diego Unified bought the partnership's old office, getting them out of a long term, expensive lease.

The partnership, a quasi-public agency, funds six job centers in the county and more than 30 training programs.
