Program Summary

Local Care Teams (LCTs) are intended to support families in accessing services and supports when there is no identified lead agency, or a family does not meet eligibility for a particular service.

Local Care Teams include representatives of the local/regional child- and family-serving agencies, such as the local Core Service Agency, the Local School System, Juvenile Services, Social Services, Developmental Disabilities, and addictions Services, as well as representatives of family members and youth.

Families may self-refer to the LCT. LCTs do not have funding, but serve as a place where families can get information from all of the agencies to see if there are possible community resources, services, or supports to help their child. It is an opportunity to have all of the agencies in one place and ask questions in a family-friendly environment.
