Lawmakers hope to keep senior center open

January 20, 1999

ANNAPOLIS - State lawmakers said Wednesday they are looking for ways to prevent a Hagerstown assisted-living center from having to close its doors.

"This is a good organization. The problem is they're falling in the middle for funding," said Del. Sue Hecht, D-Frederick/Washington.

The nonprofit Senior Living Alternatives runs two centers on South Potomac Street, Holly Place and North Holly.

The center needs $11,592 by the end of the month to keep going, said Board President Jean Hettenhouser.

The center also has a budget shortfall of $4,000 a month.

Residents there cannot live alone, but are not sick enough to be admitted to a nursing home.
