Temporary Shelter Care Facilities

The Temporary Shelter Care Facility (TSCF) Interim Licensing Standards (ILS) Version 1 (6.1.2017) constitute the written instructions authorized by Assembly Bill 403 (Chapter 773, Section 123, Statutes of 2015), and Assembly Bill 1997 (Chapter 612, Section 131, Statutes of 2016) for the California Department of Social Services to implement the Continuum of Care Reform Provisions that govern temporary shelter care facilities (TSCF).  The TSCF ILS build upon the existing licensing regulations contained in Title 22, Division 6, Chapters 1 & 5 and specifically address the new licensing requirements for a county children’s shelter that is operating as a licensed group home to transition to a TSCF.  Any questions regarding TSCF ILS, please contact the Continuum of Care Reform at ccr@dss.ca.gov.
