The Tennessee Department of Human Services (TDHS) office on 3360 South Third Street will be temporarily closed due to necessary repairs.

TDHS announced the closure late Wednesday, and said a power surge in the building caused a power outage. A cooperative effort between TDHS, the Department of General Services, and Memphis, Light, Gas, and Water (MLGW) determined a temporary office closure was necessary in order to complete the required repairs.

The other Shelby County Department of Human Services' Family Assistance office, located at 3230 Jackson Avenue in Memphis, will continue to be open for services. 

Employees will not report to the Third Street location. Employees will be eligible for administrative leave on May 5. However, some employees will be instructed and notified to work at the Jackson Avenue location. 

TDHS will be notifying staff who work at the South Third Street location by email regarding procedures during the temporary closure.

No date is given as to when the office will be operational again.
