On With Life’s long-term program has resided on the Glenwood Resource Center campus since its beginning in 1993. It’s an important part of our continuum of services, and one that we are committed to providing. In April 2022, the state announced its decision to close the Glenwood Resource Center, which directly impacts the persons served, staff and families of our long-term program. This impacts On With Life due to us leasing space from the state of Iowa on the Glenwood Resource Center Campus for our long-term program. Therefore, we had to work very closely with On With Life’s board of directors and the State of Iowa to research and evaluate all possible options to find a solution that best supports the needs of those we serve and their families.
After evaluating all options, the decision was made to relocate the long-term program to a recently-made available facility in Polk City. The new location will allow for On With Life, in conjunction with staff and families, to create the right environment for those we serve. As we work through the design process, On With Life anticipates this new facility will have 35-40 new beds, and we will be working with the State of Iowa through the certificate of need process. On With Life expects to relocate and open this new facility in early 2024.
On With Life will continue providing the same excellent quality of care to those individuals we are privileged to serve, and we will continue to hire new staff and admit persons served as we are able.
