WA: State revokes license of adult family home

October 23, 2009

The license of Amazing Grace Adult Family Home in southeast Spokane has been revoked by the state Department of Social and Health Services.

State officials today said they took the action, including a stop on new admissions, after finding numerous violations that jeopardized residents’ safety and well being.

The violations include a finding that the care provider failed to ensure that four residents were free from verbal and physical abuse and involuntary seclusion. Residents have been moved to other locations, officials said in a press release.

State officials identified the licensee as Grace Alabideen, operating at 1617 E. 17th Ave. Alabideen can contest the state action by requesting an administrative hearing within 28 days.
