​Quarterly Licensing Report

The Department of Human Services (DHS) licenses residential and day programs and services across five licensing offices – the Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL), the Office of Children, Youth, and Families (OCYF), the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP), the Office of Long-Term Living (OLTL), and the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS). DHS and the Wolf Administration are committed to upholding quality of care and services in licensed care settings, working with providers to address concerns and regulatory violations in a timely manner when identified, and holding providers accountable through provisional licenses and license revocations.

DHS is committed to transparency and accountability, and in the spirit of this, DHS is consolidating information about licensing actions taken in the past quarter. More information about provisional licenses issued and licenses revoked can be found in the following provider directories:
