What is Wraparound?

Wraparound is a planning process that follows a series of steps to help children and their families realize their hopes and dreams. The wraparound process also helps make sure children and youth grow up in their homes and communities. It is a planning process that brings people together from different parts of the whole family’s life. With help from one or more facilitators, people from the family’s life work together, coordinate their activities, and blend their perspectives of the family’s situation.

Services include

  • Referral to additional support people who are not yet involved, but who may be needed to help the child and/or family.

  • The child and family work with a Wraparound Facilitator to create a team made up of the family, natural supports (such as other family members, neighbors, friends, etc.), informal supports (church, coaches, etc.), and formal supports (agencies, professionals, etc.)as needed. 

  • The family’s team develops one plan that all interested parties utilize. The plan is based on strengths of the child and family. Each team member including the child and family has responsibilities in the plan.

  • Transition planning with the aim of ensuring the family can manage when the formal process of wraparound ends.

How is this plan different?

  • It is Driven by Underlying Needs

  • It is Grounded in a Strengths Perspective

  • It is Supported by an Effective Team process

  • It is Determined by Families 

  • The plans developed are flexible and unique to each family

  • Plans that do not meet the needs of the family are reviewed and changed.
