South Coast Community Services







Marriage & Family Therapy

South Coast Community Services is proud to announce the launch of a brand new mental health services program under our umbrella of services: marriage and family therapy. Through this program, small and large families, as well as couples, can seek the advice of experienced mental health professionals and get an outside perspective on how to handle various conflicts.

Please partner with us to help our kids

Almost all of our services are funded by outside sources, like County government, school districts, or Special Education Local Plan Areas. The funding doesn't always cover every need, so for these needs we ask your help. Large or small, it all goes straight into getting things for our kids.  Thank you!


Good Faith Estimate

The No Surprises Act (NSA) requires that health care providers and facilities provide an estimate for the cost of health care to uninsured (or self-pay) individuals before he or she agrees to get the item or service.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy.

You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.

If you receive a bill that is four hundred or more dollars more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

Success Stories

Sara's Story

Afflicted with a serious degenerative disease, Sara required intensive care that her impoverished, struggling parents did not feel able to handle. They had a hard enough time as it was, living in a local motel, her mother battling a substance abuse problem, and her father a recovering alcoholic. After spending nine months at a shelter, Sara’s caregivers couldn’t find another group home that would take her – until they contacted South Coast. Now, Sara is in a loving, caring environment, and there's the hope of her even being able to develop strong bonds with her relieved family members.

Garrett's Story

When Garrett came to South Coast, he was just eight. His father had physically abused him and he bears a scar across his forehead from a time when his dad tossed him through a glass window.

Along with his traumatic childhood, Garrett had been diagnosed with autism. He spent several years in an SCCS group home.

Today, he’s living on his own and leading a productive life. While he has no contact with any of his family, he never fails to telephone South Coast every year on his birthday to bring them up to date, and also because he knows it’s a tradition for an SCCS staff member to take him out to dinner. Garrett puts on his best clothes, always shows up early, and makes a point of saying that he’s doing well now, not to worry.
