Polk center

The Polk Center in Polk, Venango County, is a state-run intermediate care facility for people with intellectual disabilities. It was established in 1897.

The Department of Human Services is holding a public hearing today at 5 p.m. atĀ Atlantic Avenue Church, 160 Atlantic Ave., Franklin, on the planned closure of Polk State Center.

Under Act 3 of 1999, DHS is required to hold public hearings within 30 days of announcing plans to close a facility for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Comments offered at these hearings will guide DHS during the transition process and help DHS understand resources and options that will need to be available to residents and families during the transition.
