HILLVIEW -- A new business that is part of the national ResCare system has brought its services to northern Bullitt County.

Community Alternatives Kentucky recently hosted an open house for its staff, its patients and community leaders.

The firm has a day program and assists in finding in-home residency for adults with special needs.

The company opened in a portion of the old Winn-Dixie in Hillview.

Steve Hendricks, vice president of ResCare, said the enjoyable aspect of their business is to keep people out of institutions and in their homes.

That was a goal when the business started 20 years ago and that continues to be today’s mission.

He praised the staff for its quest to help people reach their highest level of independence possible.

Employees were honored for their service and some of the adults with participate in the programs were also honored.

Hillview officials were joined by county judge Melanie Roberts and state officials in honoring Community Alternatives Kentucky.

The open house included tours of the facility and refreshments.

About 100 individuals are served daily at the local company.
