How the sites differ
Neighborhood Place brings together staff from multiple agencies in one readily accessible location under a single team leader to work respectfully with families in their own neighborhoods. The Neighborhood Place centers were built on a shared vision that includes the following:
All residents of Jefferson County will be served by one of eight regionally located Neighborhood Place centers.
The size and constellation of services will vary from center to center according to the needs and scope of the existing service network of the neighborhood.
The core services at each Neighborhood Place will include health, mental health, juvenile services, school-related services, financial and housing assistance, and child and adult welfare services.
Providers of these core services will share a commitment to prevention, community education and family self-sufficiency.
