Z Place On The Bluff is a unique gathering place, a community-based family support center, and network that houses a full range of innovative learning and community services that work collaboratively to enhance the lives of children, families, and communities.


Z Place is a fun named created to convey youthful energy and the dynamic combination of resources that have come together to create this unique community-driven network of services. The letter Z stands as a symbol liveliness. As Z Place is evolving and growing to meet the unique needs of the community, we want everyone to feel it is their place —welcoming and here for them.

The Spanish translation of the name is "Lugar de la Z en el farol."


Z  Place is located on the bluff at 1254 Central Rd. Baton Rouge, LA. Other Zoom Sites will expand the Z Place network throughout Baton Rouge. Zoom Sites will be smaller facilities, located at schools, churches, and health centers that house partners and programs which meet the needs of community students and families.

Z Place On The Bluff is an innovation project and a place-based model created by local partners to accelerate the most creative thinking available to enhance life-long success for children and families living in the greater Baton Rouge area.
