Wraparound is a planning process for adoptive families that follows a series of steps to help children and their families realize their hopes and dreams. The Wraparound process also helps make sure children and youth grow up in their homes and communities. It is a team-based process that helps groups of people involved in your family’s life work together toward a common goal. With help from a Wraparound facilitator, people from the family’s life work together, coordinate their activities, and blend their perspectives of the family’s situation.
4 Phases of Wraparound
Our Wraparound team is truly dedicated to our families to make every effort to help children and youth grow up in their homes and communities, without the need of a higher level of care outside the home. Our team is here to improve your well-being and ensure a safe, stable, and permanent family environment.
The primary qualifying criteria are that the youth has been adopted out of foster care and is experiencing mental health or behavioral challenges. Each county of origin makes the final decision regarding your family’s Wraparound qualifications.
What is the Cost?
There is no cost to your family to receive Wraparound. Funding comes from state Adoptions Assistance, and through billing insurance. Your family continues to receive your monthly Adoption Assistance Payment and it does not interfere with existing family services.
How to get started:
Contact Kindred Hearts to request an intake session to see if our services are a good fit for your family. Final approval for funding will come from a County Adoptions Worker, though we work closely with your family and your worker on the approval process.
