Community Wraparound Team

The Community Wraparound Team includes a coordinated network of services that engages youth with serious emotional or behavioral challenges and their families. The team also works with families to expand their connection to other agencies and natural supports.

The Community Wraparound Team helps youth and families meet their goals at home, in school, in the community and in all aspects of life. Services and supports are evidence-informed; build on strengths; and promote the full potential of every youth by addressing their physical, emotional, intellectual, cultural, linguistic and social needs.

The goal is for youth at risk for removal from their homes to remain in their homes and to keep out-of-home placements as brief as possible.

The team engages families in an array of services that “wrap around” them:

  • Clinical assessments to determine the youth and family’s needs, strengths, preferences and goals.
  • High Fidelity Wraparound, a team based collaborative process, to develop and implement strength-based individualized care plans with children with mental health challenges, their families, and professional and natural supports. Facilitators and parent coaches assist the team in regularly monitoring the plan and making changes as needed.  
  • Intensive Care Coordination to ensure that youth are served in the least restrictive environment that meets their needs.
  • Individual and family clinical treatment including evidenced based practices such as Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
  • Family Partner Program [TB1] to assist parents through coaching, education, outreach, resources, referrals and advocacy.
  • Multi-system team-based assessment process for residential psychiatric treatment services.

To be eligible for services, the Alexandria youth must be aged 5-21 with an IQ score of 70 or above. Youth must meet one of the following criterion: was diagnosed with a serious emotional disturbance; is involved with Social Services or the Juvenile Justice System; is returning to the community from detention, a residential treatment program or a foster care placement.

For more information, call 571.213.7963.
