INDIANAPOLIS - Forty-four workers have been laid off at Damar Services, a nonprofit organization that helps people with autism, developmental disabilities and behavioral challenges.
Communications director Nicole Woods said Damar employs more than 900 employees and the layoffs impacted workers in both residential and community-based programs.
"Over the last two years, Damar's growth projection for certain programs has been unrealized, resulting in a reduction in work force last week," said Woods in an email to Call 6 Investigator Kara Kenney. "These tough changes are necessary to preserve our mission, to stabilize these areas, and to plan for the future."
The employees were notified last week and the layoffs were effective immediately.
"Because the growth was unrealized, there will be no impact on the youth and community," Woods said.
Damar Services is funded by various public and private entities.
"Any decision that impacts our mission is influenced by several factors, including funding," Woods said.
