New Focus to Close June 16, 2017

It is with great sadness that I announce the closing of our New Focus program effective June 16, 2017. New Focus cares for individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury. The main funding source for New Focus, a major grant from the Employment Division of DHS, will be terminated on June 30, 2017.

The decision to close New Focus, like closing any of our programs, is difficult. However, without sufficient funding, I believe that the 18 – 20 clients served daily can receive the best possible care from other providers. We are working to provide uninterrupted programming for our clients and our existing clients are being referred to other service providers. Anixter Center staff will have the opportunity to apply for open Anixter Center positions.

I would like to thank the New Focus staff for their dedicated efforts on behalf of our clients and I wish them best of luck in their future endeavors.

Sincerely,
Dr. Teresa Garate
President and CEO
