Our commitment to youth is consistent with our commitment to organizational growth and development in that as youth’s needs continue to evolve and emerge, so do the practices and services in our organization. By identifying needs and tailoring them, our continuum of care model remains one of the most responsive service models in the county.
Trauma Informed Care
Our research indicates that childhood trauma is prevalent in our community, as evidenced by over 85 percent of CCSC students served having experienced some form of childhood trauma. To address this need, CCSC has developed the Care Village model that provides trauma informed care and supportive services to children and families.
The term iAYA refers to innovative Approaches to Youth Achievement. As the name implies, Project iAYA serves as our vehicle for identifying and cultivating lessons learned into innovative best practices in the care and supportive services domain.
Youth Violence Prevention
The number of sudden and unnecessary deaths of children in our country as a result of violent crimes has necessitated a response. As a result, CCSC has launched the Minority Youth Violence Prevention (MYVP) program that aligns the efforts of county level leaders with community stakeholders in a coordinated effort to address youth violence.
These significant adaptations demonstrate CCSC’s ability to enhance the breadth and depth of the continuum of care model to ensure it is responsive to the emergent needs of our community.
