Wraparound is a comprehensive approach to care designed to keep children and families together through highly individualized services developed in a family-centered, team planning process. Services are provided at home and in the community to children and adolescents with the most complex needs.
Wraparound seeks to provide supports that help to stabilize a youth, such as setting goals, building on their strengths and interests, and enhancing the family’s knowledge and understanding of one another.
Wraparound aims to prevent out of home placements, helping children remain within their own family home in the community. The program collaborates with families, other natural supports, schools, juvenile justice system, DFPS, and other child serving agencies.
Intake procedure: Designed for youth between the ages 3-17. Qualified individuals have typically experienced a recent hospitalization, crisis episode, or other out of home placement. Send referrals by email to WRAPAround@metrocareservices.org.
