CenterPoint Human Services has chosen NuDay Case Management Inc. to provide services to Forsyth County’s mental-health court.
The decision comes about five months after CenterPoint terminated a contract it had with Ivy House Center for Self-Sufficiency. CenterPoint, the Winston-Salem agency that provides behavioral-health services to Forsyth and three other counties, terminated the contract soon after James Lackard, a co-founder of Ivy House, was arrested on Aug. 10 on federal drug charges. James Lackard and his wife, Jenna Lackard, incorporated Ivy House as a nonprofit in 2007. James Lackard has since pled guilty to the charges and is awaiting sentencing. Jenna Lackard, the executive director of Ivy House, has not been criminally charged.
