Welcome to Office Of Inspector General Residential Child Care Licensing

Thank you for visiting the Residential Child Care Licensing (RCCL) database.

This site provides the public with access to information on all licensed Child Caring Institutions (CCI), Child Placing Agencies (CPA), Outdoor Child Caring Programs (OCCP), Maternity Homes (MH), and Children’s Transitional Care Centers (CTCC).

If a facility is not listed on this site, then it is not licensed by RCCL. RCCL has authority to license, monitor and enforce rules for Child Welfare Agencies, as they are defined in O.C.G.A 49-5-12.3(a)(2) and (3).

The RCCL database provides full access to facility surveys completed and closed in the last 24 months. RCCL surveys provide the public with information on rules and regulations that were found to be out of compliance on the date of the RCCL site evaluation. Surveys resulting in no citations or only citations on the A-C level are considered in substantial compliance.

Each citation is accompanied with a letter from A-L, which reflects the scope and severity of the respective citation.

  • Letters A-C represent citations that even if allowed to continue over a period of time are not likely to have an adverse effect on the physical or emotional health and safety of a person or persons in care. Facilities with violations in this category are still considered to be in substantial compliance with the rules and regulations.
  • Violations represented with the letters D-F are considered Category III Violations. These are violations which indirectly or over a period of time had or are likely to have an adverse effect on the physical or emotional health and safety of a person or persons in care or are violations of administrative, reporting, or notice requirements.
  • Violations represented with the letters G-I are considered Category II Violations. These are violations which had direct adverse effect on the physical or emotional health and safety of a person or persons in care and are all subject to enforcement action.
  • Violations represented with the letters J-L are considered Category I Violations. These are violations which caused death or serious physical or emotional harm or posed an imminent and serious threat to the physical or emotional health and safety of one or more persons in care.
