Residential Child Care Licensing
The Residential Child Care Licensing unit will help simplify and enforce the Secretary of Health and Human Resource's duties to license and monitor child group residential facilities and child placing agencies to assure children are receiving the best care possible as outlined in the West Virginia State Code §49-2B
The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources operates a 25 bed residential facility for youth ages 12-18 years old. For more information please go to The West Virginia Children's Home.
If you are interested in operating a residential placement or a child placing agency for a child, please see the Residential Child Care and Child Placing Licensing Documents.
