Missouri Youth Center Closes After Employee Arrests

Feb 17, 2021

A behavioral health organization is shutting down its residential treatment facility in Webster Groves following an FBI raid and the arrests of three employees on suspicion of child abuse.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Great Circle didn’t explain what prompted the shutdown but said in a news release that the closure “will allow us to fully focus on the other important work we do in St. Louis and around the state.” Great Circle is Missouri’s largest provider of residential treatment for children with developmental delays or behavioral challenges. It has 13 residential facilities. Police reports show the arrests were on Jan. 21.
