South Carolina Continuum of Care
The mission of the South Carolina Continuum of Care (COC) is to ensure continuing development and delivery of appropriate services to those children with the most severe and complex emotional or behavioral health challenges whose needs are not being adequately met by existing services and programs. In order to carry out this mission, the COC provides intensive care coordination through a care planning process called Wraparound. Wraparound is a team based approach to caring for families with complicated needs. COC ensures the special needs of our families are met by augmenting existing resources to create a full-service array that ensures our youth have access to services and supports needed in order to be served in the least restrictive, most appropriate setting.
