The Children’s System of Care focuses on services with the focus of services as well as system management resting within a supportive, adaptive infrastructure of structures, processes, and relationships at the community level.
Families have a primary decision making role in the care of their own children as well as the policies and procedures governing care for all children in their community.
Young people have the right to be empowered, educated, and given a decision making role in the care of their own lives. This includes giving young people a sustainable voice and then listening to that voice.
Culturally and Linguistically Responsive
Organizations, programs, and services are relevant and unique to each individual and family's cultural, linguistic, and social needs.
When organizations, programs, and services are based on an understanding of the vulnerabilities or triggers of trauma survivors that traditional service delivery approaches may exacerbate, so that these services and programs can be more supportive and avoid re-traumatization.
System of Care is an approach to services that recognizes the importance of family, school and community, and seeks to promote the full potential of every child and youth by addressing their physical, emotional, intellectual, cultural and social needs.
