Community Care Facilities

Community Care Facilities (CCFs) are licensed by the Community Care Licensing Division of the State Department of Social Services  to provide 24-hour residential care to children and adults with developmental disabilities who are in need of personal services, supervision, and/or assistance essential for self-protection or sustaining the activities of daily living.  Based upon the types of services provided and the persons served, each CCF vendored by a regional center is designated by one of the following service levels:

  • SERVICE LEVEL 1:   Limited care and supervision for persons with self-care skills and no behavior problems.
  • SERVICE LEVEL 2:    Care, supervision, and incidental training for persons with some self-care skills and no major behavior problems.
  • SERVICE LEVEL 3:    Care, supervision, and ongoing training for persons with significant deficits in self-help skills, and/or some limitations in physical coordination and mobility, and/or disruptive or self-injurious behavior.
  • SERVICE LEVEL 4:     Care, supervision, and professionally supervised training for persons with deficits in self-help skills, and/or severe impairment in physical coordination and mobility, and/or severely disruptive or self-injurious behavior.  Service Level 4 is subdivided into Levels 4A through 4I, in which staffing levels are increased to correspond to the escalating severity of disability levels.
