Boys and Girls Home and Family Services has closed its South Sioux City, Nebraska, residential treatment facility.
Clients, who were served in South Sioux, have moved into the agency's main campus at 2101 Court Street in Sioux City.
Art Silva, the president and CEO of Boys and Girls Home said, "This move will improve the environment of care for our children in an efficient and cost effective manner and is consistent with our plan to focus on providing the highest quality of care for all clients."
The agency rented the building on Futures Drive in South Sioux, so the move saves money immediately.
However, the change does come with a loss of jobs. A spokesperson says as many as five positions were eliminated in the consolidation process.
