A Franklin organization that offers programs and jobs to residents with developmental disabilities will move into a new facility by the end of the year.

Hillcroft Services is planning a new building at the northwest corner of Commerce Parkway and Arvin Road. The new facility will be smaller than the current location at 400 N. Forsythe St. but will be built with wider doorways and restrooms that are more accessible to people with disabilities.

Hillcroft Services serves about 60 area residents with developmental disabilities by offering them jobs or day programs, and the new building will give the organization space to grow, company officials said.
