Continuum of Care




The Mission of the Continuum of Care is to ensure continuing development and delivery of appropriate services to those children with severe emotional disturbance and their families in South Carolina whose needs are not being adequately met by existing services and programs.

In order to carry out this mission, the Continuum will supplement existing services available to this population and promote supports that encourage family strength and self-sufficiency by providing or procuring services to complete the range of services needed in the least restrictive, most appropriate setting. Further, the Continuum will ensure that the delivery of those services represented in its Array of Services (in-home treatment programs; residential treatment programs; education services; counseling services; outreach services; volunteer and community services) are in compliance with appropriate state laws.
