System of Care is a nationally recognized framework for organizing and coordinating services and resources into a comprehensive and interconnected network. Its goal is to work in partnership with individuals and families who need services or resources from multiple human service agencies to be safe and successful at home, in school, and in the community, and through this assistance, make the community a better place to live. System of Care builds on individual and community strengths, and makes the most of existing resources to help children and their families achieve better outcomes.
System of Care values:
- Interagency Collaboration
- Individualized Strengths-based Care
- Cultural Competence
- Accountability to Results
- Child and Family Partnership
- Community-based Services & Supports

System of Care in the community
On a local level you can find multiple problem solving groups that are working together with families to achieve safety, permanence and well being for children. Some examples of these groups are Juvenile Crime Prevention Councils (JCPC), Community Child Protection Teams (CCPT), local Community Collaboratives, and Local Child and Family Team Advisory Committees.

System of Care for Families
On an individual/family level you can find SOC in practice through Child and Family Teams. A group of persons (professionals, family members, friends and community supports) selected by the family to assist them in developing a plan to address the significant issues in their family. This group can be called together as needed, by the family or anyone involved with the family.
