Why do I need this bond?

California residential care facility bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (care facilities) faithfully and honestly handle the money given to them for services by their clients/residents. 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.
