Horizon Behavioral Health is preparing to open a new home for Central Virginia Training Center residents to move into.

A new home at 999 Lakeview Drive in Lynchburg is in its final stages of construction as an Intermediate Care Facility, or ICF, which provides around-the-clock services to a small group of people with special needs.

CVTC is slated to close next year and its remaining residents with intellectual and physical disabilities are moving to community-based settings as per a settlement agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice. As of April about 50 residents still were living at the Madison Heights facility. One residential option that qualifies as a community-based setting is an ICF home, which usually provides care for anywhere from four to 12 residents.
