Anka Behavioral Health has announced it is laying off employees in nine locations, including 74 individuals in Burbank and Glendale.
Layoffs are expected to be effective June 27, according to a notice the Pleasant Hill-based company sent to the California Employment Development Department.
“Please be advised that Anka is diligently working to transition to new providers as many of its contracts and support staff as possible to avoid disruption to client care,” Anka said in a statement. “We are hopeful that you will have an opportunity to interview and secure employment with these providers to continue running your programs under a new provider.”
In the notice, the company cited its “financial condition” as the cause for closing regional center programs. Anka expects the layoffs to be permanent.
Anka owns Evergreen Home, Anka Maple Home and Anka Wyoming Home residential facilities in Burbank, and crisis center Zook Place in Glendale.
