FamilyWise is pleased to announce that it has received $5,000 from the Luther I. Replogle Foundation to support High Fidelity Wraparound Services in 2016. High Fidelity Wraparound is a nationally recognized model aimed at helping youth with significant behavioral, emotional and mental health issues, who are at risk of out-of-home placement, to remain safely with their family and in their community.
Credentialed facilitators are assigned to work with youth and their families in the program. High Fidelity Wraparound literally “wraps” a family in supports and resources to help youth to succeed in reaching their goals and gain stability. FamilyWise is the only Minnesota agency certified to provide High Fidelity Wraparound.
Since 1976, FamilyWise has been keeping children safe and helping families gain the stability needed to lead healthy and productive lives. FamilyWise provides parent education, comprehensive support services, and supervised visitation and safe exchange services to at-risk children and families experiencing trauma. Over 1,600 families were served in 2015 and nearly 2,150 children were kept safe while parents learned to help them achieve age-appropriate developmental milestones.
