For the last 60 years, Uta Hallee provided services to troubled girls and their families. That history comes to an end and the doors are closing at the facility located in the Ponca Hills of Omaha. Executive Director Mary Fraser-Meints says after today the Uta Hallee Girls Village will be no more. Today, Thursday, is the last day for the community based girls. The girls in the residential program left last Friday
Three girls were denied high level care but private donations are paying for their treatment at other facilities. There were ten community based girls being served and Uta Hallee was able to put their families in touch with other facilities and programs so they can continue treatment.
Uta Hallee is closing due to a sharp reduction in state funding.
