HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) - A northwest Indiana day care is appealing the state's decision to revoke its license.
Indiana Family and Social Services Administration spokeswoman Marni Lemons told The Times of Munster that Northwest Family Services in Hammond is appealing the state's decision to revoke the license after it was cited for cited 117 violations.
Northwest Family Services Director David Armistead told The Associated Press at the time the center was working with the state to resolve the issues.
Lemons says the facility already has corrected some issues and is expected to submit a written action plan. Lemons says more changes are needed.
Lemons says the facility received $680,953 from the FSSA last year.
The Department of Education also suspended funding to the facility, citing "serious deficiencies" in its operation.
