Groups Meet in Richmond to Keep More Centers Open

City_of_Richmond_Business_DistrictFamilies, advocacy groups, and legislators met in Richmond Monday to evaluating options to keep more centers open. The move is part of a larger push to allow more people to live in smaller community-based homes rather than state institutions. Currently, all but one center for people with intellectual disabilities is slated to shut down. The Central Virginia Training Center in Madison Heights, which has about 290 residents, is set to close in 2020. The closings stems from an agreement the state reached with the Justice department to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act.
