Community Concepts Groundbreaking Ceremony
In early August, Community Concepts held a groundbreaking ceremony for two 6-bed homes (Intermediate Care Facilities) to be located in West Carrollton, Ohio. The homes will be part of the state’s Developmental Center (DC) downsizing collaborative efforts, whereby DC Community Resource Coordinators assist with the transition into the community home.
