Services for family health, safety, well-being and permanency
The Wraparound Team uses a collaborative approach to develop a plan that will meet the needs of the children and families and improve their quality of life.
The WRAP Program is designed to ensure that families safely stay together and to prevent the removal of the children from the home. WRAP Services provide support services to both children and parents. WRAP Services work to create healthier and stronger families and individuals. To achieve the goal of preventing further involvement in the child welfare system, WRAP staff provides the bridge to family support systems and community services
Who is on the Wraparound Team? Anyone the Family Chooses. Educators, mental health professionals, clergy, family members, neighbors, friends, child welfare professionals, Dept. of Juvenile Justice professionals are typical members. The goal is to eventually decrease the number of professionals on the team and increase the family’s own support members. The family’s ongoing success is maintained by establishing this support network.
