ARC is structured to align with the IOC (Improving Outcomes for Children) service delivery model which envelops the belief that a community-neighborhood approach with clearly defined roles between county and provider positively impacts safety, permanency, and well-being.

The four primary outcomes of the IOC delivery system model are: 

  • More children and youth maintain safely in their own homes and communities.
  • More children and youth achieve timely reunification or other permanence.
  • A reduction in the use of congregate care.
  • Improved child, youth, and family functioning.

As subset to the model’s outcomes, ARC’s (Achieving Reunification Center) overarching goals... 

are centered towards supporting clients in overcoming barriers to reunification and achieve self-sufficiency. Attainment of these goals is accomplished through supported holistic service systems that include the following objectives...

  • Increasing family’s economic stability
  • Increasing family’s access to needed services and community linkages
  • Reducing waiting time for reunification services
  • Increasing opportunities for families to visit children in out-of-home placement.
  • Increasing family’s behavioral health
