What is Wraparound?
Family voice and choice
Your family’s and child’s ideas are most important in the Wraparound Process.
Friends and supports from the community are strongly encouraged to be part of your CFT.
The Wraparound Process respects and builds on the values, preferences, beliefs, culture, and identity of your child, family, and community.
The Wraparound Process and the Wraparound Plan identifies the positive skills of each member of the CFT and builds upon them to help your family reach its goals.
CFT members work together and share responsibility to create a plan with achievable goals for your family.
Your family chooses who will be part of a team, called the Child and Family Team (CFT), to support your family in achieving goals.
No two plans are alike; your child’s Plan will be specific to his/her strengths and needs.
Despite challenges, the CFT continues to work toward the goals of your family until Care Management Services are no longer needed.
When creating the Plan, the CFT makes sure there are clear ways of measuring the goals identified by your family. The Care manager continuously monitors the strateges to make sure they are helping your family reach those goals.
The CFT finds different ways in your community to help your family achieve the set goals.
Circle of Care is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to assisting Passaic County multiple-needs children and their families. We are a Care Management Organization (CMO) that partners with families to design, implement, and manage Individual Service Plans for children with complex needs using both informal and community support. We believe in a model of care that is family-driven, culturally competent, and community-based. Using both formal and informal supports, we build on the strengths of the family and the community to enhance the quality of life for the children we serve. We strive to creatively discover existing or new resources for children with emotional and behavioral problems, and their families to ensure that services are responsibly delivered when and where they are needed, with documented results.
