Va. Begins Moving People From Centers

CHESAPEAKE, Va. -- Within the next few months, Sandra Arnold will move to a new home.
The 57-year-old woman has lived in state institutions for the mentally disabled since she was 5, and at Southeastern Virginia Training Center in Chesapeake since it opened nearly four decades ago.
She's now part of a wave of intellectually disabled residents who are moving out of the state's five training centers in an unprecedented downsizing effort, which could eventually lead to closing some entirely.
