The Bayfront Youth & Family Services in Long Beach houses some of the state's most emotionally vulnerable children. The facility is part of a class of group homes known as Level 14.
The home, nestled in a residential area, has been at the center of allegations, ranging from kids going missing to aggressive use of restraint from the staff.
Pro Publica reporter Joaquin Sapien has been looking into the unraveling crisis. Earlier this year, he reported on a similar facility in Davis, California called Families First. It has since closed down after allegations surfaced of rape of girls as young as 11 years old.
