Based upon a cross-sectional mailed survey of all group home providers in the state of California, this study provides current information on the size of group home settings, the cost of care, and the staffing in various group home arrangements. Issues such as staff turnover are discussed in addition to the need for a commitment to ethnic and cultural diversity among staff. Agency administrators' views of the future trends in group home care are provided along with recommendations for change. © 1993 Human Sciences Press, Inc.
