Why are residential care facilities bonded?

California residential care facilities are bonded to ensure that principals (care facilities) faithfully and honestly handle the money given to them by their clients/residents for services provided. If the facility mishandles or misappropriates the funds, the bond protects harmed parties from financial loss up to the full penal sum of the bond. The principal, in turn, must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
