The local agency representative and licensing inspector conducted an unannounced complaint inspection in response to a complaint that was received by the licensing department on November 13, 2019 regarding allegations of program. The inspection was initiated on 11/18/2019 and completed on 11/22/19. On 11/18/19, the inspector was on site between 9:33 am to 10:40 am. Interviews with staff were completed, observations were made in the center, and documentation was reviewed. The preponderance of the evidence gathered during the investigation does not support the allegation; therefore, the complaint is determined to be not valid.

A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.

The online compliance history includes only information after July 1, 2003. In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
