SYSTEM OF CARE
Delivering Safe, Healthy and Productive Lives is Our Goal and Our Privilege.
Stomp The Stigma System Of Care (SOC) is committed to promoting positive life outcomes and bright futures for our society's most vulnerable children. Research indicates vulnerable youth often experience challenges that place them at risk of low educational, social, economic, and health outcomes. To address this need, SOC was created to address the burgeoning school to prison pipeline and has since evolved to meet the emerging needs of our society's most vulnerable youth.
We begin by cultivating an interagency collaborative that serves as a network of pro-social support along the continuum of care model. Partnering agencies provide evidence based programs and services to students at risk of poor life outcomes.
Our continuum of care model is based on the premise that the complex needs of our society's most vulnerable youth can best be addressed through the coordinated care of multiple agencies and committed actors in the community.
System of Care Process
STEP 1: Student Referral
School administration identifies students who are in need of System of Care services.
Students who meet one or more of the following criteria are eligible for referral to System of Care (SOC) Staffing/Intake Departments.
Out of School Suspensions
School Based Probation
Exposure to Trauma Internalizing Behaviors
Failing Courses/Lack of Credits
STEP 2: Enrollment
The parent or guardian attends a meeting with the SOC panel and school to discuss their child's strengths and needs.
Based on the students needs, the parent is offered one or more of the following services. All services are provided by SOC certified providers.
Therapy (Individual & Group)
Mentoring (Intensive Individual & Group)
Job Readiness/Workforce Development
Trauma Responsive Care
Students Embrace Their Intrinsic Value System
Goals Become Clear
Team Support is Customized
Spirited youth face an insurmountable internal conflict when environments reject their intrinsic values. When their values are not shared by others or honored by our school, home, and societal environments, isolation sets in. When the nonconformist personality and societal constructs cannot reach a compromise, stress and anxiety fester.
The System of Care recognizes and honors the student's values and guides them in a constructive manner to achieve desirable outcomes. By identifying needs, passions, and goals, our continuum of care model offers unprecedented responsiveness to the unique needs faced by our school's most vulnerable and at-risk members.
