WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A Christian not-for-profit group that helps area youth is phasing out its residential treatment program.

Quakerdale, which has a campus in Waterloo, will no longer provide the service after a decline in referrals.

In 2015, the group saw only 10 referrals.

In years' past they said they saw more than 100.

The Waterloo facility will continues to provide community-based counseling, emergency shelter for kids and transitional living for older kids.
