The state agency that operates all of Virginia’s training centers is moving away from institutional care and shifting funds to private groups that provide home-based care. Some training centers in other parts of the state have already shut down. State Senator Steve Newman has proposed legislation to slow the process of closing CTVC. … Newman has introduced a budget amendment that would prevent money from being shifted away from the Central Virginia Training Center. He also wants the state to consider partnering with a private agency to operate four buildings on the training center property. … Under Newman’s plan the state would retain ownership of the training center, but a private group would be in charge of its day-to-day operations. Some families worry a private operator will cause the level of care to go down. … 212 people live at the Central Virginia Training Center right now, according to a spokesperson for the facility.
