Synopsis: A system of care (SOC) is a unique program; no two are alike. This uniqueness causes many difficulties when trying to present the merit and worth of a SOC. As SOCs struggle with sustainability issues, the necessity of a cost/benefit (C/B) analysis becomes apparent. Funding sources demand a C/B analysis before considering providing support. Most traditional C/B analysis represents an SOC as an expensive undertaking. This presentation looks at a model utilizing avoidance savings as a center- piece of the analysis. Using this model creates a C/B analysis that reflects the benefits created by a SOC.
