Child Protection Services Agency Search

The South Dakota Department of Social Services, Division of Child Protection Services licenses facilities and agencies for Child Placement Agencies, Shelter Care/Emergency Shelters, Group Care Centers for Minors, Residential Treatment Centers, Intensive Residential Treatment Centers and Independent Living Preparation Programs and monitors compliance with Administrative Rules of South Dakota (ARSD). Yearly on-site reviews are conducted. If required, a corrective action plan is generated which details any issues of non-compliance found and the agency action taken for each issue of non-compliance. A corrective action plan is time limited and can be developed following an on-site review or an investigation of allegations of non-compliance.

Document Descriptions:

  • License Certificate and Study: The License Certificate indicates the start and end dates of an agency’s license and the services the agency is able to provide. The Study document is the summary of the on-site renewal study and visit.
  • Corrective Action Plan: The Corrective Action Plan is a standard document sent to the agency after a visit is completed detailing non-compliance with ARSD licensing standards which require correction within a specified timeframe.
