One Door, One Guide to Children’s Services in Sudbury-Manitoulin Districts
The Children’s Community Network (CCN) is a nonprofit agency funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) with a volunteer Board of Directors. CCN provides Coordinated Service Planning for children and youth with multiple and/or complex needs and their families. CCN is also the central access mechanism for many ministry funded children’s services and provides information and referrals to other programs available to children and their families in the community as well as service coordination.
The Children’s Community Network was incorporated as an organization in 2003. The Ministry of Community and Social Services policy framework “Making Services Work for People” was the impetus for the creation of CCN, with its requirement that communities establish a central access system for children services and a process for case resolution at the district level.
Sudbury / Manitoulin Districts initially responded to this requirement with the establishment of a co-operative model for central access, but ultimately resolved that a standalone organization would be required to bring policy directions to fruition.
