On May 27 the agency's governing board decided to end the program on
June 30. The state owes the agency in excess of $120,000.
"With limited corporate assets, it was impossible to keep
floating the debt of the program with no end in sight. Ending the
program was a very difficult decision for all involved, but the
governing board was forced to do what was best for the agency as a
whole," said Angela Stoltzenburg, Community Action executive
The program has been administered by Community Action for over 20
years. In May, the program served approximately 120 seniors in Logan
County with 17 staff.
The seniors served by Community Action through the program have
been referred to other agencies that provide home-care services.
Several of the staff members are entering employment with those
agencies or pursuing other educational opportunities.
The agency continues to operate a variety of other programs to
serve seniors and low-income individuals in the six-county service
area of DeWitt, Fulton, Logan, Mason, Menard and Piatt counties.
