The elements defined in the Continuum of Care Reform
(CCR) are interdependent and require changes in existing
regulations, policy and practice by
the California Department of Social Services and
the California Department of Health Care Services. This
reform necessitates county welfare departments, county mental
health plans, and service providers build the necessary
infrastructure to reform existing policy, hire and train staff to
implement new requirements and build the new program models.
These providers include: Foster Family Agencies (FFAs), Group
Homes, Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans (MCPs), Community Based
Organizations (CBOs) and Fee For Service (FFS) providers.
