ARC aligns with the IOC (improving outcomes for children) model which contains the belief that a community-neighborhood approach with defined roles between county and provider positively impacts safety, permanency, and well-being.  The IOC focuses on the following outcomes:

  • Children and youth maintain safety in their own homes and communities.

  • Children and youth achieve timely reunification or other permanence.

  • Reduction in use of congregate care.

  • Improved child, youth, and family functioning.

  • Economic stability

  • Behavioral health

  • Opportunities for families to connect during OOH placement
