In 2008, the Governor of the state, Bobby Jindal, signed and implemented “Neighborhood Place”.
This model of delivering human services ‘reflects the unique strengths and needs of local communities’ and aims to provide better health care, education and employment to the people of the state so as to make them self-sufficient.
Neighborhood Place provides comprehensive services for helping individuals and families which are at risk or need immediate help and later monitors their progress to ensure that they are inching towards self-sufficiency.
It does so by removing all barriers that come in the way of delivering health care, education, employment and human services and ensuring that the services are provided in time by engaging in dialogue and actions that would remove all bottlenecks.
The benefits extended by the Neighborhood Place Model, as per the Neighborhood Place Tool Kit 2009 report, include:
Providing comprehensive services
Helping remove barriers in the way of creating an environment conducive for education
Ensuing collaboration between agencies by encouraging teamwork
Promoting a healthier lifestyle among the people of Louisiana
Doing away with the traditional model of service delivery which provides fragmented services and replacing it with an integrated model where comprehensive services are made available at a single platform
Basing the program on family strengths and values and working by showing respect for the families served
Striving to attain the best possible results
