Kim Taylor, Executive Director of FAYCO Enterprises, was at the recent Bond County Board meeting and provided board members with FAYCO’s annual report.
In the past year of operations, FAYCO served 272 adults from Bond, Fayette, and Montgomery Counties with a staff of over 135 full and part-time employees. Of the 272 adults served, 64 or 24% are residents of Bond County.
Taylor also noted that with the closing of the Murray Center in Centralia, the state will move residents into facilities with specific amenities. FAYCO expects to welcome some of these residents and assumes that some will eventually be moved into new residential units in Bond County.
