Nevada County Brighton Greens Resource Center opening this February

On Feb. 8, the extensive five-month Brighton Greens remodeling project will be completed. The Nevada County Brighton Greens Resource Center will open to the public located at 988 McCourtney Road in Grass Valley. Eight individual partners will move into the building to provide one integrated service site for Nevada County residents.

The 20,000-square-foot building has been transformed from a long-vacant medical insurance call center to a flagship of integrated services for the Nevada County Health & Human Service Agency that will house approximately 90 county and contracted staff once the move is complete March 3.

The Resource Center will house seven divisions of HHSA and share clients from multiple facilities previously located miles apart: Veterans Services, CalWORKs Employment Services, Children’s Behavioral Health, Child Protective Services, Woman, Infant and Children, Child Support Services representative, and Continuing Eligibility Unit. In addition, the Grass Valley One-Stop Business & Career Center operated by Alliance for Workforce Development will continue to partner with CalWORKs Employment Services and offer employment services to all Nevada County residents in a portion of the building that has been designed specifically for their needs.

The five-week process to move the partners in will result in some brief interruption of services to residents. Here is the moving schedule in chronological order:

CalWORKs and One Stop Career Center: Closed Feb. 3-5, reopens Feb. 8

Veterans Services: Closed Feb. 8-12, reopens Feb. 16

Woman, Infant and Children: Closed Feb. 10-12, reopens Feb. 16

Child Protective Services (CPS): Closed Feb. 16-18, reopens Feb. 19

Children’s Behavioral Health: Closed Feb. 22-24, reopens Feb. 25

Child Support Services: Open to the public at new location March 3

Continuing Eligibility Unit: Open to the public at new location March 3

The CPS 24-hour Intake Line will be staffed throughout the moving process and on-call Social Workers will be available to respond as usual.

All new eligibility services will continue to be accepted and processed at the Eric Rood Administrative Center in Nevada City during the move.
