Under the agreement reached last month and unveiled Wednesday, the county will shutter its Sheltered Care Home on Friday. In exchange, the county will provide any additional financial support the residents need over the next ten years in their new placements, which will be funded using any money that isn't spent this year on a new facility in Collinsville.
