Md. May Help Rescue Shuttered Center For Disabled

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is seeking a role in the possible reopening of a Frederick nonprofit that provided jobs and training for the developmentally disabled.

The Frederick News-Post reports that DHMH is seeking court-ordered receivership for the Jeanne Bussard Center. A receiver would hold the center’s assets pending resolution of its status. Then a new organization could take over.

The center closed abruptly July 5. DHMH says it’s been told that the executive director was fired and the board of directors resigned.

The Internal Revenue Service has filed liens totaling more than $466,000 against the center. And DHMH says the center is five years behind on its financial statements.

The department licenses the center to operate and provides a portion of its funds.
