Nebraska facility closing to consolidate in Iowa

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A social service agency has consolidated its northeast Nebraska residential treatment facility into a Sioux City campus.

The Boys and Girls Home and Family Services location in South Sioux City has closed. Officials say there wasn’t enough demand for the organization’s services to support the Nebraska operation and that Nebraska funding had been limited.

The organization provides counseling and other community services for young people.

The consolidation will cost five people their jobs.

A Dakota City, Neb., facility, the Siouxland Family Center, will remain open.
