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.
