810 Neighborhood Place Relocates and Renames to Charmoli Center
New Location Expands Footprint of Services
A new Neighborhood Place will open this week in the East Government Center in Middletown, expanding the agency’s footprint to low-income residents long underserved by its programs.
The Charmoli Center, which opens Wednesday, replaces the location in the soon-to-close Urban Government Center. About 18,000 families in the zip codes served at the new location qualify for the school free or reduced lunch program. The new location at 200 Juneau Drive will be named for Jane Charmoli, one of Neighborhood Place’s founding champions.
The Charmoli Center will house staff from multiple agencies — Louisville Metro Community Services, Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS), Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services and Seven Counties Services, Inc. — in one accessible location. Core services provided include:
- Financial and housing assistance with case management services
- Juvenile and school-related services
- Child abuse intervention and prevention
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
- Medicaid Assistance
- Substance abuse assessment
- A Dare to Care emergency food pantry
- Self-sufficiency programs
All agency email addresses and phone numbers, including the main front desk line of 574-6638, will remain the same. The Charmoli Center will have ample, free parking at the new facility which is also accessible by a couple TARC bus routes. The hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
A total of eight Neighborhood Places, along with two satellite sites, serve residents across Jefferson County. The decision to relocate 810 Barret Neighborhood Place was prompted by the closure of the Urban Government Center. The 810 Barret location was previously the most eastern Neighborhood Place.
Residents are free to seek services from any of the eight Neighborhood Places.

“This will build upon the success of the Neighborhood Place’s mission to bring services and supports to our neighborhoods and communities. This continues the vision of serving as the front door for individuals and families looking for vital assistance provided with and through the model of collaborative community services,” said Eric Friedlander, director of Louisville Metro Community Services. “I am excited that the Charmoli Center will expand the Neighborhood Place footprint, and thrilled to honor Jane who worked tirelessly to establish and sustain this model.”
Other agencies at the East Government Center include the Middletown Library, Louisville Metro Police's Eighth Division and a Driver's License Bureau.
