Monterey County’s System of Care:
La Familia Sana - The Healthy Family

A system of care is not a program — it is a philosophy of how care should be delivered. It is an approach to services that recognizes the importance of family, school and community, and seeks to promote the full potential of every child and youth by addressing their physical, emotional, intellectual, cultural and social needs.
