Q: I supervise a THP+FC program and am wondering what the maximum caseload is for a THP+FC social worker? I also would like to know where these numbers could be found in the Community Care Licensing regulations.
A: THP+FC placements are licensed under the Transitional Housing Placement Provider license. The client to case manager ratio for a Transitional Housing Placement Provider is 1:12. While the Transitional Housing Placement Program regulations indicate a ratio of 1:25 for social workers, this was amended in statute to be a 1 to 12 case manager to client ratio. You can find this is Welfare and Institutions Code section 16522(f)(3).
