37 Elderly Residents Rescued From Unlicensed Group Home

HARRIS COUNTY, TX – Dozens of elderly residents were rescued from an unlicensed group home in southeast Harris County Monday afternoon.

Harris County Precinct 7 deputy constables say they received a call from a woman living in New York who had concerns about her 62-year-old brother who reported being held against his will at the resident home.

Deputies say they had to force their way into the unlicensed group home and to their surprise located three-dozen elderly residents crammed inside, most with severe medical conditions.

Aside from the 37 residents living in the four-bedroom home, deputies also discovered some living in the garage. Investigators say the home was very un-kept and only had one working toilet.

KPRC 2 | Elderly residents crammed into several bedrooms.

At least 13 residents were rushed to a local hospital for their medical conditions and the others were placed in licensed group homes or assisted living centers.

The Constable’s Office identified the home’s operator as Carl Richardson. Officials say he has other similar group homes and has been investigated by the HPD in the past.

Another investigation will take place. At the time, no arrests or charges have been made.
