Wraparound is a voluntary process available for youth ages 0-17 and families who have tried but been unable to meet needs through natural means and traditional service supports. It is for youth and families who have multiple service agencies and/or systems involved in their lives (i.e., child welfare, mental health, special education, juvenile justice, medical, etc.) and have complex service and care coordination needs. Youth in the following programs are granted immediate entry: Secure Child Inpatient Program, Secure Adolescent Inpatient Program, Psychiatric Residential Treatment Programs, and Commercial Sexually Exploited Children’s Residential Programs.
The Wraparound process works together with the youth and the family to identify their strengths and needs. We will develop a plan that builds on those strengths to meet the needs that have been identified. The team consists of members invited by the youth and family as well as providers such as mental healthcare providers, teachers, child welfare caseworkers, and/or Juvenile justice counselors. A Wraparound Care Coordinator along with a family partner and/or youth partner will assist the youth and family on coordinating services and activities that meet their needs in the least restrictive, community-based setting possible. In Wraparound, we believe that a plan can be successful when it’s family driven, youth guided, and is solution focused.
No one will be denied access to services due to inability to pay; and there is a discounted/sliding fee schedule available based on family size and income
To access the referral packet, click the word “Resources” at the top of the page, then click “Forms & Releases” the referral packet is near the bottom of the page. If you are a service provider, please complete it with the assistance of the identified youth and/or family. Once we receive the completed packet, a Wraparound staff member will contact the referent, legal guardian, and other individuals identified in the referral.
The youth and family will be invited to an optional meeting called our “Wraparound Review Committee” that is held on the last Tuesday of the month. This committee is made up of members from youth and family serving systems in Columbia County. The youth and family are invited to share their needs and goals with these members directly. The committee members will review the referral and then discuss how their systems can assist the youth and family in their Wraparound planning process. If you have any questions or are interested in getting involved in our Wraparound program, please contact the Wraparound team at email@example.com or call 503.397.7919.
