Wraparound is a family-centered,
strengths-based, trauma-informed planning process that takes place in a team
setting, where children and families participate in partnership with
practitioners to achieve goals related to safety, permanency, and well-being.
Wraparound is based on a model of service that develops plans focusing on the individual strengths and needs of members of the family. Plans center on the family, and are built upon the child and family’s unique strengths.
The Wraparound process helps families rediscover hope. Active crisis and safety planning minimize uncertainty and fear. Through Wraparound, families develop an effective support network, increase their sense of competence, acquire new skills for managing the special needs of their child, and have access to the supportive resources they need to build brighter futures for themselves.
