High-Fidelity Wraparound

High-Fidelity Wraparound

"We had so much hope when we met [our Wrap Family Partner] and ever since then, the program has been so beneficial to us. She was always there. Every week she would come around whether it was snowing, raining, shining—and we just became like a family. I’m equipped now, I feel equipped to have that independence, that confidence I need in order to take care of my needs and my family." — Wraparound program participant

FamilyWise’s fully-credentialed High-Fidelity Wraparound program lifts up family voice and choice so that we can “wrap” the right support around youth and their families. We help you tap into a network of informal “natural supports,” from neighbors to friends to family members who can all contribute to a healthy home environment.

Referrals for Wraparound

Wrap participants are referred by Hennepin County Health and Human Services (HHS), Hennepin County Department of Community Corrections and Rehabilitation (DOCCR), Anoka-Hennepin School District, Dakota County Juvenile Corrections and Human Services, Ramsey County Juvenile Probation and Washington County Human Services to FamilyWise for High Fidelity Wraparound (“Wrap”) services.

How does Wraparound work?

After you have been referred, our staff will work with you to figure out the best group of people to be on your Wrap team. You will identify people already in your family’s life—examples include friends, neighbors, family members, clergy, teachers, and more—to be part of the team, alongside FamilyWise professional staff members. Together, you will put together a Wraparound Action Plan that meets your needs in a range of areas, from education to mental health to safety and more. The action plan also helps you coordinate different agency requirements (for example, juvenile justice or custody protocols) while also setting goals to pursue during your time in the program (and beyond).
