Two Relocation Sites (to be completed by applicant)
Acceptable relocation sites are a hotel like Holiday Inn. Another ARF home, Red Cross or a Church will not work. You will need to get two letters on letterhead from two hotels indicating the hotel will accept your clients in an emergency. A sample letter follows:
Independent Living ARF is an Adult Residential Facility licensed by California Department of Social Services. I agree that my Best Western Hotel located at Adams Blvd in Los Angeles will be used as a relocation site for Independent Living ARF in case of an emergency.
Signed by the owner or manager.
Name of Your Facility
Note: The name of your business can be separate from the name of your facility. A good idea is to name your facility in a way that identifies it’s location. For example Sepulveda House North. Religious names may be heartfelt and meaningful to you but may be a turn off to family and others considering placement.
