In the news

  • In 2007 the police report filed against staff member, who kicked a child [3] [4]. Unfortunately for the staff member did the child record the conversation between the child and the staff member on tape. The authorities of the hometown of the child did pull the child from the facility and the staff member was reported to the police. The staff member was later fired [5], but the well-known lack of interest made the authorities drop the increased supervision of the facility [6].
  • In 2009 it was revealed that the facility was closed a year earlier and a new management applied for a permit to run a group home under name "Venus" in the buildings which housed the group home [1]
