Elderly program in trouble
‘We can’t work for free,’ Tri-County CEO says
ROCK FALLS – A program that helps the elderly in the Sauk Valley could be in jeopardy.
The state is behind by more than $1 million in payments to the Tri-County Opportunities Council, which runs the homemaker program in Whiteside, Lee, Ogle and Carroll counties.
The state Department of Aging is running out of money for the program. Without a supplemental appropriation, Tri-County would have to stop services and lay off employees, said Terri Lawrence, the organization’s CEO.
