Richmond-based Reid Health has donated an unused building in Connersville to Interlocal Community Action Program Inc. Reid says the agency will use the facility as a central access point for social services.
ICAP Executive Director Kevin Polivick says the nonprofit plans to join with other social service agencies to develop a hub of services that will include programs focused on nutrition, housing, employment and training.
Reid assumed ownership of building when it acquired the former Fayette Regional Health System in 2019.
“We wanted to see the property used for services needed in the community,” said Billie Kester, vice president of continuum of care for Reid Health. “We felt ICAP would be able to successfully operate from the location, which will provide a central and convenient access point for those in need of services.”
The agency expects to open the facility this spring.
