The Coordinated System of Care (CSoC) is an initiative of the State's four child-serving agencies - DHH, DCFS, OJJ and Department of Education - to provide intensive care management and family-driven, youth-guided services to children and youth ages birth through 21, with complex behavioral or emotional needs who are in or at-risk of being in out-of-home placements. CSoC can serve up to 2400 children and youth in the state of Louisiana at any given time.

CSoC may serve 2400 children throughout the state at any given time.
Clinical eligibility for CSoC is based on the Level of Care and the Level of Need as determined through the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) Comprehensive Multisystem Assessment and the Individual Behavioral Health Assessment (IBHA). These assessments are based on a face-to-face interview with the child/youth and their family. Financial eligibility is determined through the Medicaid application process.
