South Coast Children's Society, Inc.
South Coast Children’s Society, Inc (SCCS) was founded in 1984 in response to Orange County’s growing number of abused, neglected, and/or abandoned children and youth and their families needing care. SCCS has over seven programs serving five southern most counties in California by providing a continuum of care from prevention and early intervention to residential intensive programs. SCCS is committed to the healing, growth, and restoration of children and families by providing: emergency or long term shelter; individual, group, and family counseling; intensive behavior modification; independent living skills training; medication management; occupation and recreation therapy; and education to provide the framework for a sustainable future. Over 15,000 lives have been impacted by SCCS services since inception and all clients are treated regardless of ability to pay, religious affiliations, race, or ethnicity. As a fully licensed and registered non-profit, SCCS receives funding through County grants and private donations.
