Grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at their new headquarters just a block away from courts system

(Louisville, KY) So many have expressed their concern that they have to travel all over the city to handle their social service needs.  We introduce to the community, The Green House.  The family resource center provides supervised visitation and facilitated exchanges, individual, co-parenting and group therapy, and psychiatric services all under one roof for the convenience of their clients.

On Friday, August 9th at 717 W. Market Street, Suite 1 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm city officials, community leaders, clients and prospective clients will tour the facility and interact with staff.  During the open house, a ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 4:00 pm.

The Green House’s founder Jessica Green understands and is appreciative of the one stop shop convenience.  Green, a family law practitioner, healthy family advocate and adoptive mother of three children says “In honor and loving memory of her parents, James and Dr. Judith Green, who adopted 11 children, and fostered over 100 children during their lifetimes, The Green House, was birthed, furthering their legacy of creating a better community, one family and one child at a time. I too understand the importance as a mother the difficulty that many families have in going to multiple service providers to make sure that their family’s needs are met in a timely fashion. Our focus is to strengthen and support families”

At The Green House, each family is required to do an in-person intake interview with one of our service clinicians, and to complete an intake form to ensure that we understand the unique needs and concerns of each family.  It is also important that each family understands how our program works.  Case workers and judges are also able to refer cases directly to The Green House.  Intake forms and Court referral forms can be found on our website at GreenHouseFamilies.com.

The Green House accepts all insurances for therapeutic services and offer competitive and affordable rates for our visitation and exchange services.

In addition to offering supervised visitation (both monitored and sight and sound), facilitated child exchanges, we are pleased to also offer individual and group therapy, co-parenting therapy, reunification therapy, parenting classes, provide documentation for Court and CHFS services, and have a board-certified psychiatrist on our staff.  Certain clients may also qualify for case management services.

For additional information on The Green House Resource Center visit their website at www.greenhousefamilies.com.

During the ribbon cutting ceremony, we will have remarks from a member of Mayor Greg Fischer’s office as well as Councilwoman Barbara Sexton Smith because The Green House is in her district.

School-aged youth in attendance will receive some school supplies to assist them with a fresh start to a new school year.  We will also have vouchers for free haircuts and school physicals for qualifying students.

If you would like to setup an interview with Green prior to the ribbon cutting ceremony, please contact VIPP Communications at info@vippcommunications.com or by calling 502-295-0435.

On Saturday, March 16th, eight African American women from Kentucky will be honored by Bumble through Bumble Bizz and Freedom of Priss (FOP) at Flavour lounge at a private dinner. Dinner will be followed by a celebration open to the public that will start at 9 pm. These women are being celebrated for being business owners or leaders in their fields, which include fashion, media, marketing, psychology, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Founders of Freedom of Priss, LaPrecious Brewer and Joelle Robinson want to acknowledge these business heroes and shed light on the impact that they have made in their communities. FOP will also use their unique stories to serve as empowering examples for younger minority women through a series of social media campaigns that will be ongoing.

Among the women being honored are Aryea Kolubah, fashion designer who recently had her gown featured on HBO and Vogue, Sherlene Shanklin, multimedia editor for WHAS11 and owner of VIPP Communications and Braea Tilford, former Miss Kentucky USA and founder of Grow Lead Inspire; a conference that enriches young women. Councilwoman Jessica Green will also be in attendance to honor these women for their myriad accomplishments. (Full list of honorees below.)

Bumble is a social app that lets women make the “first move” in dating, friendships and their careers. Bumble was founded by Whitney Wolfe Herd (co-founder of Tinder) to challenge the antiquated rules of dating. Now Bumble empowers users to connect with confidence whether dating, networking or meeting friends online. Bumble Bizz and Bumble BFF are components of Bumble.

The Freedom of Priss is a platform created by LaPrecious Brewer and Joelle Robinson that enriches and empowers women to be their most authentic and bold self, to achieve their ideal of success in relationships, careers and in the community.  For years, society has placed great emphasis on HIStory and there is no finer time than the present to invite women from diverse backgrounds to share her story.  This platform seeks to energize women to move into their purpose while gaining knowledge and insight from one another through personal discussions on the highs and lows of being our true selves and achieving our goals. FOP will begin hosting a series of events, printed materials and online content to foster a sisterhood of authentic women and help them to achieve their personal goals that they seek to meet.
