Vision

Every youth and family in York County will be able to access and navigate a unified network of effective services and supports that are built upon the SOC values and principles that strengthen family and community connections.

Mission

The youth, family and system leaders of York County work as equal and trusted partners to build on each others strengths to provide comprehensive and effective care which will empower youth, families, and all youth serving systems to be responsible and accountable for positive outcomes at home, in school, in the community and throughout life.
