The NC SOC Expansion Model

The planning process eventually coalesced into the NC SOC Expansion Model with a vision, mission, population of focus, and areas of focus illustrated in the chart shown below.

North Carolina System of Care Values

The state’s strategic plan for children and youth with SED and their families is guided by the following values ratified by NC SOC Expansion Planning stakeholders.

  • Interagency collaboration bringing together child and family-serving agencies from the public, private and faith based sectors.
  • Individualized, strength-based practices recognizes that all families are different and each child will have their own plan, which ensures appropriate services are easy to access, effective and match the culture and language of the child and family.
  • Cultural competence is built on the belief that in order to work effectively, there must be an understanding of the family’s culture, race, values and ethnic background.
  • Services are community based so that children receive appropriate services in their homes and neighborhoods.
  • Extensive participation of families at all levels is a commitment to the “family-driven & youth guided” practice, which ensures that there is a family and youth partnership at the community and state level for purpose of program planning and direction.
  • Shared responsibility for successful results is a collective awareness that all stakeholders have a responsibility to individual/family resiliency and outcomes by ensuring an effective network of programs and natural supports in each community.
