Program Information

What is a 'licensed' program?
The state of Wisconsin 'licenses' certain group living situations such as group homes and adult family homes. Entities must meet strict requirements for assuring physical safety, programming, staffing, training and ongoing daily supports. The State monitors the quality of services through unannounced site visits. If violations are found the service provider must correct the violations. The State has the authority to fine providers for significant violations and in critical situations not allow the program to continue operating. You can find out more about State oversight and licensing as well as what to look for when considering assisted living at the following website:
