End Of The Road For Glenwood Resource Center

There’s no light at the end of the tunnel for the Glenwood Resource Center. The State Of Iowa will officially close the campus in Glenwood on Sunday, June 30. The facility provided care for thousands of Iowans with intellectual and physical disabilities. It originated as a Civil War home for orphans in the 1860s and later transitioned into an institution for mental health care.

The sun is setting on the Glenwood Resource Center.
