Explanation
BACKGROUND: The Neighborhood House Inc., had a rich history of service to the City of Columbus for over 106 years, and provided social service needs to the near eastside community. The closing of the Neighborhood House in late 2016 has left the Near East Community with limited programs and services to children, individuals, and families that include: child care services, alcohol and drug counseling, senior transportation, senior outings, computer classes, and food pantry access. This legislation authorizes the Director of the Department of Neighborhoods to enter into an agreement with the United Way of Central Ohio to complete a neighborhood assessment of social service needs in the Near East Community.
Emergency action is requested so that an assessment of the community needs can be made, thereby avoiding the continued interruption of services.
FISCAL IMPACT: This legislation transfers $20,000.00 from the Department of Development to the Department of Neighborhoods within the general fund.
