What are the requirements to open a group home in ca?

I assist prospective group home owners with the application process which is in accordance with current regulatory process. I first need to know which population you would like to provide services to because many people use the term Group Home in a generic manner. Are you referencing a home for troubled youth, the disabled., etc?

If your goals are to provide a service delivery to the youth, I have some important information to share with you and it is necessary to know which county you plan to operate in. Many counties have a moratorium on accepting new Group Homes in their community.

Before you attend orientation it is important to conduct research which will provide you with information needed to avoid making costly mistakes.
