Ohio Group Home Forced to Close

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- The embattled and financially troubled House of Hope group home for mentally disabled adults has closed and is giving up its Ohio Department of Health group-home license.
Charlene Crissman, administrator of the group home at 115 Illinois Ave., said the home is relinquishing its license and will not reopen under the current management.
We don’t have the financial means” to reopen, Crissman said, adding that 17 employees, including herself, have been laid off because of Thursday’s closing, which follows this week’s relocation of all 42 residents.
