COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) - Youth services in northern Idaho are changing as two organizations in Coeur d’Alene announced major changes.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reports (https://bit.ly/1KJiWfl ) that Crosswalk North Idaho, a youth drop-in center and outreach program, announced it is closing and Idaho Youth Ranch administrators said they are discontinuing residential drug and alcohol treatment for teen boys at its Anchor House program in Coeur d’Alene.

Crosswalk North Idaho served 162 adolescents in the past fiscal year, but lots its federal funding two years ago. When the program reapplied, it was turned down again.

An Anchor House spokesman said the treatment is transitioning from a drug and alcohol treatment center to a more locally focused family resource center. He said the decision was driven by community needs, not finances.
