FRANKFORT, Ky. (Aug. 4, 2009) – The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services has closed its Department for Community Based Services (DCBS) offices at Louisville’s L and N Building, 908 W. Broadway, Wednesday because of flooding.

For assistance, clients may visit any of Jefferson County’s other DCBS offices at Neighborhood Places.

The building will reopen when the facility is safe and operational for customers and staff.

“Our customers are our No. 1 priority, and our staff is available at nine other locations across Jefferson County to assist them,” DCBS Commissioner Patricia R. Wilson said.

DCBS’ abuse reporting hot line, which houses operators at the L and N Building, has also been affected.

Kentuckians who need to report suspected abuse or neglect of an adult, child or senior should call their local law enforcement agency, or 911 if someone is in immediate danger.
