The principles of Wraparound include family voice and choice: the family’s needs are priority. The program is team based and revolves around each area working collaboratively to share the responsibility for the child. Wraparound is community-based and culturally competent working towards goals until no longer required.

How It Works

A service provider, community member, or parent identifies a child and/or family who wants support. The parent or guardian then signs a release and a referral is completed. These are sent to the Wraparound Coordinator.

The referral is reviewed by a collaborative team and the family is accepted to the process or referred to other services. The coordinator will contact the family to let them know if the child has been accepted into the program.

The family gets started by identifying their strengths, challenges, and family team.
