SYSTEM OF CARE

System of Care

Purpose: The Marion-Polk System of Care (SOC) includes a diverse group of local organizations committed to addressing barriers to health and wellness for system-involved youth and families.

Core Responsibilities:

    • Establish a table of diverse systems partners to create a holistic lens to review and address community-identified barriers impacting local youth and families.
    • Elevate youth and family voice and support changes within the community that youth and families have identified and need most. 
    • Maintain awareness of and strategically support implementation of new state initiatives impacting youth and families at the local level.
    • Monitor youth and family well-being to inform preventative community efforts.

2023 Priorities: Coming soon.

Meetings: SOC meetings are closed to the public.
