The Salvation Army is closing its Adult Day Center Program in Maplewood immediately.

The nonprofit said financial difficulties stemming from the coronavirus pandemic led to the decision.

The program was for seniors with physical or cognitive issues but has been closed throughout the "stay at home" order.

"These are always difficult decisions to make, and we are deeply saddened because of the effect they have on staff, clients, and the communities we serve," said Lt. Colonel Lonneal Richardson, commander of The Salvation Army Northern Division. "With the loss of revenue and the added cost of new program requirements, we just couldn't find a way to make this program financially feasible in the COVID-19 era."
