Children, Youth & Families
High Fidelity Wraparound
Keeping families together and safe
High Fidelity Wraparound supports children and youth with complex emotional and behavioral needs by focusing on the goals of the family. High Fidelity Wraparound is a structured, team-based process that uses an evidenced-based, nationally recognized model that honors family voice and choice, and understands the needs of community providers working with families and children struggling with mental health issues. Wraparound facilitators partner with families, leveraging their voice and strengths to develop a family-driven plan that supports successful transitions from residential placement or to avoid out-of-home placement. The youth and families we serve must either live in Hennepin County or be working with a Hennepin County Mental Health Case Manager or Child Protection Worker.
Helping families find a path forward
Every family has a story and their own hopes and dreams. The families we serve have faced barriers to achieving their goals, often affecting their ability to stay together. Our facilitators and peer specialists work with families to assess each family’s unique needs and develop a plan to build from their strengths to succeed together, helping the family move closer toward their dreams.
Youth struggling with emotional and behavioral issues often have very complicated care plans from several different providers. Our facilitators work with families to help blend care activities into one cohesive plan that meets the behavioral health needs prioritized by the young person and family. Facilitators also coordinate with other family support staff, including peer specialists who work one-on-one to provide parent peer support. The voices of youth and their families are at the center of each care plan, developing and strengthening the family’s natural support system over time.
A moment in time does not define a family. This process is designed to help integrate all social service systems and natural supports into one organized and effective plan to help families see the path forward together.
