Bay Area Group Homes for Children and Teens
Violations over the past 5 years
Child and teen victims of abuse and neglect in California are put in the care of the state's child welfare system, where they can be placed with family members, foster or adoptive parents, or assigned to 24-hour child care facilities known as group homes. To ensure those facilities provide adequate care, investigators with the California Department of Social Services conduct unscheduled inspections. As part of that process, group homes can receive two different types of citations: "Type A" citations are given for deficiencies that pose an "immediate risk to children's safety, health, or personal rights," while "Type B" citations are given for deficiencies that pose a "potential risk to children's safety, health, or personal rights."
