Lassen County Wraparound
About Our Partners At Wraparound
Wraparound is a strengths-based planning process that occurs within a team setting. Their purpose is to engage with children, youth, and their families, working alongside them to identify their strengths and needs. Wraparound shifts away from traditional service-driven, problem-based approaches, we focus on building upon individual and family strengths to achieve positive goals and enhance overall well-being.
From the start, a child and family team is formed and works directly with the family as they identify their own needs and strengths. The team develops a service plan that describes specific strategies for meeting the needs identified by the family. The service plan is individualized, with strategies that reflect the child and family's culture and preferences. California Wraparound is intended to allow children to live and grow up in a safe, stable, permanent family environment. For children and families in the foster care system, the Wraparound process can:
Enhance strengths by creating a strength-based intervention plan with a child and family team;
Promote youth and parent involvement with family voice, choice, and preference;
Use community-based services;
Create independence and stability;
Provide services that fit a child and family's identified needs, culture, and preferences;
Create one plan to coordinate responses in all life domains; and
Focus on achieving positive goals.
