810NP Brief History

History of 810 NP

In May of 1996 the fourth Neighborhood Place opened in the Urban Government Center at 810 Barret Avenue with Karen Jarboe as its Administrator. Neighborhood Place 810 Barret serves the Louisville area north to the Ohio River, south to Hill Street, Oak Street and Bardstown Road, west to I-65 and east to the Jefferson County line. In the beginning, the agencies offering services were Louisville Metro Human Services, Louisville Metro Public Health and Wellness, Jefferson County Public Schools, Seven Counties Services and The Cabinet for Health and Family Services. Neighborhood Place partner agencies have collaborated together over the years in such initiatives as the Families R Us store, Truancy Court and Within My Reach. Recently we have added employment services with Kentuckiana Works and Court Designated Workers through The Administrative Offices of the Courts.
