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 12/27/2019 regarding allegations of programs and staffing and supervision. On 01/07/2020, the licensing inspector was on site between 10:00 am to 12:20 pm. During the inspection, interviews with staff were completed, observations were made in the center, records and pertinent 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. However, a violation was cited please review violation notice for further details. If you have any questions about this inspection, please contact the licensing inspector, Tiffany Harris at 757-403-3045.

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.
