What is Wraparound?

Wraparound is part of a treatment plan for youths and families that have come to the attention of DHHR through various routes.   It is an intensive, holistic method of engaging with individuals with complex needs (most typically children, youth, and their families) so that they can live in their homes and communities and realize their hopes and dreams. Planning is grounded in family members’ perspectives, and the team strives to provide options and choices so that the plan reflects family values and preferences. It’s a team approach working together for a common goal. http://nwi.pdx.edu/ (National Wraparound Initiative)
