Governing Agencies and Legal Mandates

   SFRC is currently licensed by the State of California and is regulated by the Department of Social Services (DSS) and Community Care Licensing (CCL). These licensing agencies investigate and ensure that each residential care facility is in compliance with Title 22 regulations.

   The Department of Developmental Services contracts with Valley Mountain Regional Center (VMRC), which requires SFRC to meet stringent Title 17 guidelines. These regulations are set to establish the rights of each resident or client/consumer.

   Levels of care are determined by the DSS as identified in Title 17, including what constitutes different levels of care for clients, how many staffing hours are needed for each, and how many consultant hours are required.

Each care facility is responsible for:

  4. Assistance with daily living skills and medications
