Matthew Duboy had lived at the Koscieiniak IRA group home on Handley Street for 15 years.
For 15 years he had a routine.

That was until Nov. 30 when his parents Karen and Dave Duboy received a call from the Finger Lakes Developmental Disabilities Service Office in Leicester that the Koscieiniak IRA was being closed.

The state Office for People With Developmental Disabilities, which oversees the group homes, says Koscieiniak is suspended as the agency continues to deal with staffing shortages. The suspension, meant Matthew and the other 10 residents would be moved to the nearby Perry IRA in 11 days.

“(Matthew) is a very routine kid,” Karen said. “Trying to get him established in (Perry IRA) has taken a lot of extra work on everybody.”
