Resource centers to be rebranded as “Opportunity Centers”

We recently announced that we’ll be shifting how and where we serve Kentuckians in need.

Earlier this year, we announced a $100 million partnership with Norton Healthcare and unveiled plans to open the commonwealth’s first “Opportunity Campus” in West Louisville. We will begin rebranding current resource centers and opening “Opportunity Centers” throughout the commonwealth to provide wraparound services for people in its communities.

Louisville Resource Center

We recently expanded the scope, role and space of our Louisville Resource Center, located at 909 East Broadway.

With the intent to improve lives by connecting those in need with a network of resources, we’ve also enhanced our career services operations model to better support job seekers in a deeper and more impactful way.

Below, you will find links to descriptions and an updated schedule of events and employer partners at our Louisville Resource Center on a daily basis, as well as an informational flyer. Please visit the Center for any of these resources at the appropriate time and check back weekly for updates to this schedule.

Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
