This week, Grace Lutheran Foundation filed a WARN notification with the state of Wisconsin. The tax exempt organization announced that it would be permanently closing the Syverson Lutheran Home. The home is located at 816 Porter Avenue in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The letter explains that the organization will begin relocating residents as soon as possible and will be reducing staff until the last resident is placed.
The letter explains that the Grace Lutheran Foundation anticipates that it should take no more than 60 days from the date of the letter, but will be subject to how quickly placement for residents will occur. As a result of the closure, the organization estimates that roughly 80 employees will be impacted by the closure. The letter explains that the organization has begun working with Workforce Resource to help support the efforts and make the transition as smooth as possible.
