Residential Care Home Consultants

Consultants to License Care Homes and Group Homes

We are Residential Care Home Consultants - Call: 770-575-4149

If you don't have time and are confused on how to tackle the residential care home license application process, we're here for you.  Our experienced consultants can help you get licensed in your state as a care home provider.  We do the research, create the customized policy manual, attachments, operations forms, fill out the state licensing application paperwork and other steps and documents required.

Each state may call a residential care home something different.  Other names for care homes may be group homes, personal care homes, family care homes, foster care homes, child caring agencies, child caring institutions, transitional homes, independent living homes, or assisted living.  The homes name definition and specific population living in the home can be totally different depending on which state.  In other words, no two states are necessarily alike in what they call the home and who will reside in the home.

Our experienced staff coach and consult with you to complete assigned task that only you can do locally to finish the licensing process.  In other words, you will do the local running around with guidance from your consultant, and we do the rest.   Our A-Z license program provides hands-on work, consulting, and coaching for 12 full months from the date you sign your agreement.
