Beginning April 11
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (March 30, 2016) — Louisville Metro Department of Community Services on April 11 will re-locate to the newly renovated Edison Center at 701 W. Ormsby Ave. Community Services is vacating the Urban Government Center on Barret Ave. where it has been housed since the late 1980s.
The new property is a former warehouse in Old Louisville that has been brought back to life through the work of developer and architect Bill Weyland.
All agency email addresses and phone numbers, including the main front desk line of 574-5050, will remain the same. There is ample, free parking at the new facility which is also accessible on several TARC bus routes.
“Our department has proudly served thousands upon thousands of Louisvillians for several decades at the Urban Government Center, but we are looking forward to a fresh start.” said Eric Friedlander, director of Community Services. “The unique and bright office space at the Edison Center will be inspirational and welcoming for staff members and clients alike.”
Community Services provides a variety of services to Louisville residents ranging from safety net and homeless prevention programs to offering educational and training opportunities, case management, community-wide volunteer opportunities and asset-building resources to help individuals and families achieve self-sufficiency.
Teams and programs moving to the Edison Center include: Long-term Housing and Support; Senior Services including Senior Nutrition; Community Outreach; RSVP (Retired & Senior Volunteer Program) and the Foster Grandparent Program; Office For Women and Office of Youth Development; Administration and Planning; the Neighborhood Place program manager and support personnel; and part of the Community Action Partnership team.
