Wrap Around / Child Services
The wraparound process provides individualized, comprehensive, community-based services and supports to children and adolescents with serious emotional and/or behavioral disturbances so they can be reunited and/or remain with their families and communities.
Wraparound is based on a model of service that develops plans focusing on the individual strengths and needs of members of the family. Plans center on the family, and are built upon the child's and family's unique strengths. The wraparound process helps families rediscover hope. Active crisis and safety planning minimize uncertainty and fear. Through wraparound, families develop an effective support network, increase their sense of competence, acquire new skills for managing the special needs of their child, and have access to the supportive resources they need to build brighter futures for themselves.
Wraparound efforts occur in the community, where services are individualized to meet children's and families' needs. Parents are included in every stage of the process and the approach must be culturally sensitive to the unique racial, ethnic, geographical and social makeup of children and their families. The process of wraparound is designed and implemented on an interagency basis using an interdisciplinary approach in which providers have access to flexible, noncategorical funding. Wraparound services must be delivered on an unconditional basis where the nature of support changes to meet changes in families and their situations. Finally, wraparound involves the measurement of child and family outcomes to determine the effectiveness of services that ensure that appropriate populations are being served.
