In July 2014, LMCS was awarded a grant by the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD), Office of Children, Young Adults and Families (CYF) to use in the expansion of System of Care value-oriented work for the youth and their families served by the agency.

The System of Care Supplemental Support Grant is designed to further support System of Care philosophy, framework, and processes by increasing and improving cooperation and collaboration across child-serving agencies to meet the multiple and complex needs of youth with emotional disturbances and their families; improving access and expanding the array of community-based, culturally and linguistically competent services and supports for children and youth and their families; and including families and youth in partnership with the designing of programs and policies that are appropriate, effective, evidence-based, individualized, and build on their strengths in order to improve functioning at home, in the school, in the community and throughout life.
