Seminole System of Care (SSOC) provides a family-driven, youth-guided and culturally competent system of care for youth and young adults with emotional health needs and their families. Community partnerships and shared responsibility are the foundation of a service delivery model that is comprehensive, easily accessible and respectfully preserves the dignity of every family served.
A community of children and families that are well equipped to deal with the stressors of life and live empowered, independent, healthy and productive lives.
What guides our System of Care?
Priorities of the Seminole System of Care are guided by a set of core values, which are as follows:
Family-driven and Youth-guided
Strengths and needs of the individual youth and his or her family determine the types of services and support provided.
Culturally and Linguistically Competent
Involved agencies, programs and services reflect the cultural, racial, ethic, and linguistic differences of the youth and families served, thereby ensuring access to appropriate services and support, and eliminating discrepancies in care.
Services and support for the children and families of our community are managed and provided by organizations within the community, and are strengthened by relationships unique to this community.
