Published 7:24 pm Thursday, February 14, 2019

Job-seekers, employers, those in need of substance abuse treatment and parents in Boyle County have a new way to find what they need: a community resource directory compiled by Develop Danville’s Workforce Development Committee.

“This directory assists individuals, organizations, and businesses in our community to locate and access resources for job seekers, employers, substance abuse treatment/prevention and area childcare centers,” said Jody Lassiter, Develop Danville president and CEO, in an email announcing the release of the directory. “This directory would not have been possible without the significant assistance of the Families First Family Resources Center of the Danville Independent Schools (Anna Houston, Director) and the agencies of the United Human Services organization.”

The directory is available for free on Develop Danville’s website,, underneath the Workforce Development tab, or by visiting

“This will benefit our community by providing our central repository of information as we work to develop, educate and support individual citizens and their families in our community,” said Erin Tipton, a co-chair of the Workforce Development Committee.

It features four sections:

• resources for job seekers;

• resources for employers;

• substance abuse treatment and prevention resources; and

• area child care centers.

Job-seeker resources include information on services offered and how to contact organizations like Boyle County Adult Education, Bluegrass Community Action Partnership, Bluegrass Community and Technical College in Danville, the Boyle County Public Library, Central Kentucky Career Center, Vocational Rehabilitation, Legal Aid of the Bluegrass and many more. Many of the same organizations are listed within the section for employers.

The substance abuse treatment section helps anyone get in contact with many area treatment and rehabilitation organizations, including Bluegrass Prevention Center, Spero Health/SelfRefind, Liberty Ranch and Isaiah House. It also include contact information for the Boyle County Agency for Substance Abuse Policy and important phone numbers such as hotlines for suicide prevention, mental health, spousal abuse and drug use.

The child care center section lists contact information for 16 area child care centers — six in Danville, three in Stanford, three in Lancaster, three in Harrodsburg and one in Junction City.
