Advocates Fighting to Keep Virginia’s Training Centers Open

Virginia-flagAdvocates fighting to keep Virginia’s training centers open are continuing their push for a slow-down in the state’s plan to close most of its residential facilities for people with disabilities. CVTC in Madison Heights is one of four set to close in the next six year, as part of an agreement the state reached with the Justice department to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Last month, eight of Virginia’s House of Representatives members sent a letter to Gov. Terry McAuliffe, urging him to put the brakes on the process. On Monday, families, support organizations, and legislators are set to meet in Richmond to explore ways to keep the centers open.
