REDDING, Calif. - The Victor Treatment Centers announced the closure of its facilities in Redding by January 20, 2020, through a press release on Tuesday.

The closure of the residential homes and non-public school will impact approximately 60 children and 90 employees, the facility said in a press release.

“Victor has a long history of providing high-quality care to California’s youth in need of residential treatment services,” said Simona Cataldo, CEO of Victor Treatment Centers. “This decision was made after careful deliberation as it has become increasingly difficult to serve the youth referred to us at the level we deem appropriate and safe. Moving forward, we will focus our efforts on providing excellent care for youth in need through our other centers and programs.”

"The welfare of children and their families, as well as employees, impacted by this decision, is of the utmost importance," the facility said.

The group said they are working closely and contracting agencies in order to ensure a smooth transition for all youth served by the Redding program.

Victor will support employees impacted by this decision as they transition to new jobs, the facility stated.

“The decision to close the Redding program is not due to one specific incident nor the failure of Victor’s staff or residents. The face of residential treatment in California is changing and with that change comes challenges,” said Cataldo. “We will continue to partner with the State to determine the best treatment options and advocate for reform as the transition to short-term residential therapeutic programs (STRTP) continues."

Tuesday was another beautiful day for northern California as a cold front began to bear down on the West Coast. We can expect increasing clouds late tonight, stronger breezes, and a chance for mountain rain and snow showers.
