Residential Care and School Facilities

Facility types that we inspect 

The following programs are designed to protect the public from environmental dangers that may cause illness or injury when they are in care of a residential setting outside of their own home. Below is a listing of the types of different Residential Care & School Facilities that we inspect. Following the type of facility is the licensing agency that grants the facility their license to operate and a link to that agency’s website that will give you more information on how to open or operate that type of facility.
