center of attentionThe FOCUS Wraparound program is based on the family and the community working together. The focus is on the individual needs of one child, one family, one plan.

The Wraparound program is a community support system. Wraparound builds on the strengths of each individual within the family. The goal is to create a unified family plan for the future.

Wraparound addresses families' basic needs:
The Butte County effort is committed to providing Wraparound services that are family-centered, strength-based and needs driven.

How Does Wraparound Work?

A child and family team is created. Needs are identified on an individual basis. Both formal and informal community resources are accessed to meet the family's needs, and obtain their goals. Flexibility is a key component.

Each individual family is involved in deciding who is on their team. A family team may consist of: immediate family, extended family, friends, neighbors, parent advocates, professionals, county agencies and any community resource deemed necessary for a successful outcome. The family is an active participant in the team partnership. As the family's needs change, so may the team.

Why is the Wraparound Program Successful?

This approach focuses on what is working with the family. It builds on individual's strengths, assets and skills. It pulls people and community together. A team is created that strives for trust, cooperation, self-worth and family unity. Each family is in charge of their own goals and successes.
