Here at Aspire Youth and Young Adults Services, our mission is to offer affordable, accessible, and quality mental health, addictive disease, and developmental disability services. These services are provided by skilled professionals who are sensitive to the needs of individuals and families served. We accomplish that by operating within Georgia’s System of Care.
So, what is a System of Care?
A System of Care (or SOC) is a new way of partnering with families and youth. Instead of simply receiving services, families and youth partner with providers to plan and implement the services and supports they need. Providers, parents, caregivers, and youth operating within a System of Care understand that every individual is just that: a unique individual, and it’s important to consider their strengths, needs, culture, and language when designing plans with them.
The main goal of a System of Care is to make sure that youth receive services and supports that work well together, so they can thrive at home, in school, and in the community. The System of Care framework is family-driven, youth-guided, and community-based, and the child or young adult and their family are always at the center of planning and decision-making. This approach ensures that families have access to a unique array of community-based supports and services.
