Children and families enrolled in CSoC are eligible for all of the services available through Medicaid in addition to these four specialized services only offered through CSoC.

  • Parent Support and Training: This service connects families with people who are caregivers for children with similar challenges.  Parent Support staff provide support to families and help families develop skills.  Parent Support staff also provide information and education to families and help families connect with other supports in the community.
  • Youth Support and Training: Young people who have been involved in behavioral health services or other child-serving systems in the past provide support, mentoring, coaching and skill development to children and youth enrolled in CSoC.  This service works with the child or youth at home and in community locations. This service helps the children and youth enrolled in CSoC to develop skills and abilities needed to overcome challenges.
  • Short Term Respite: Respite is designed to help meet the needs of the caregiver and the child. The respite provider cares for the youth or child in the child’s home or a community setting to give the caregiver/guardian a break.  Children or youth in CSoC can receive up to 300 hours of respite each year.  This service helps to reduce stressful situations. Respite may be planned or provided on an emergency basis.
  • Independent Living Skills Building: This service helps children or youth who need assistance moving into adulthood.  Children or youth learn skills that help them in their home and community.  Children or youth learn to be successful with work, housing, school and community life.
