Few details were immediately available, but Health and human services officials in St. Louis County were seeking out new housing Monday for 23 residents of seven Duluth group homes that were abruptly closed, the Duluth News Tribune reports.

The Duluth-based Community Connection of Minnesota Inc. operates the residential foster homes for people with traumatic brain injuries and related conditions.

Anne Busche, head of St. Louis County's Public Health and Human Services Department, declined to offer specifics about why the homes were closing. She told the newspaper: “The county always has the health and safety of vulnerable individuals as its top priority; should any foster care home no longer be able to serve its residents regardless of the reason, we will work with them to ensure residents are safe.”

Company CEO Sharon Mack said the 23 residents would be put in other Duluth-area group homes.
