What's This Thing Called Wraparound?

Wraparound is an ecologically based process and approach to care planning. It builds on the collective action of a committed group of family, friends, community, professional and cross-system supports mobilizing resources and talents from a variety of sources resulting in the creation of a plan of care that is the best fit between the family vision and story, team mission, strengths, needs and strategies.
