Wraparound services are based on a “whatever it takes model.” Services are individualized, strength based and the family and youth/child perspectives are intentionally elicited and prioritized during all phases of the Wraparound process.
Wraparound is considered a long term placement, usually 6 months - one year (or so) where the focus is on maintaining a child/youth in their home. If the youth is out of home, Wraparound works on transitioning them back to their home, resource-family, or independent living arrangement (as appropriate).
An array of mental health services can be provided to a child/youth in their family home, or resource-family home, in the hopes of stabilizing the child and keeping him/her in their home, school and community.
Who can use this service?
A child or youth must be a Child Welfare Services dependent of the court, a Probation ward of the court or an Adoptions Assistance child/youth.
Wraparound services are community based. The Wraparound team implements service and support strategies that take place in the most inclusive, most responsive, most accessible, and least restrictive settings possible; and that safely promote child and family integration into home and community life.
