Western Kentucky Office Relocates From Hickory
“We needed space to expand and grow,” says Chris Owens, recruiting specialist at The Omni Family of Services, explaining the organization’s decision to relocate Omni Visions’ westernmost Kentucky office from Hickory to Alben Barkley Drive in Paducah.
The new office—which is 15 minutes north of Hickory—is conveniently located off of Interstate 24, making it ideal for serving Paducah, McCracken County, and all other surrounding counties, including Ballard, Calloway, Carlisle, Fulton, Graves, Hickman and Marshall counties.
As with Omni Visions’ other Kentucky locations, the Paducah office is an attractive, comfortable, high-quality facility, one that features a training area, conference rooms, and work space for a half-dozen employees.
Serving Foster Parents and Children
The new office is ideal for serving the needs of foster parents, children, and staffers alike, and will no doubt help employees like Owens to build on their track record of success.
In fact, Owens has already achieved a record number of approvals for foster home placements in the Western Lakes Region, and points to stellar community relationships, supportive management, and flexible training as three of the many reasons for the team’s strong track record.
“We appreciate our foster parents, and want to make sure they feel comfortable and have everything they need,” adds Eileen Cameron, an Omni Visions regional director who is responsible for the Madisonville and Paducah area offices.
We could not do this without our long-term staff members:
Elizabeth McKendree – Kentucky State Program Director/ Placement Coordinator
Eileen Cameron – Regional Director
Angela Sumnlers – Administrative Assistant
Ashley Thurmond – Resource Coordinator
Charlee Trinkle – Resource Coordinator
Taryn Thurston – Recruitment Specialist/AA/RC
Chris Owens – Recruitment Specialist
