Child & Adolescent Services

What is Wraparound?

Wraparound is a planning process that follows a series of steps to help families realize and achieve their hopes and dreams.  Wraparound brings together family members as well as those involved with the family to help them reach their goals.  The wraparound program looks a little different for every family because every family has their own unique needs, strengths, and goals.

Through the wraparound process, a family and their team develop, implement, and fine-tune a plan of care that is individualized to achieve positive outcomes for the family.

Wraparound is funded through Medicaid and the Department of Child Services.

Wraparound Principles:

The philosophical principles of wraparound have long provided the basis for understanding this widely-practiced service delivery model.

  • Family voice and choice: the family’s perspective is prioritized and the plan reflects the family’s values and preferences.
  • Team based: wraparound meetings take place with a family team. A family team is made up of family members and those involved in their care (e.g. probation, neighbors, teachers, CPS workers).
  • Natural supports: family team actively seeks out members from personal and community relationships.
  • Collaboration: team members work together and share responsibility for creating, implementing, and monitoring plans.
  •  Strength-based: the wraparound process and plan identifies, builds on, and enhances capabilities, knowledge, skills, and assets of all family members.
