The target population for the system is 553 children with severe emotional disturbances living in Charleston and Dorchester county. The target population is predominately male (62-80 percent) and African-American (51-75 percent). Half (50 percent) of the children are between the ages of 10-17 years. Children being served by the Village are from the following categories: Children who are on waiting list in the South Carolina Continuum of Care Program; Children being served through the Children’s Case Resolution System (CCRS); Department of Juvenile Justice Law Suit Claimants; Child sexual assault victims; Sexual offenders; Children in foster care; Crisis/psychiatric emergencies; and Homeless.
