Our MHS Contra Costa Wraparound Services Program will provide intensive, coordinated, and community-based services to 29 unduplicated eligible referred children, youth, their families, and caregivers annually. Those referred will follow a four-stage model of Engagement, Planning, Implementation, and Transition as they work toward permanence, safety and well-being resulting in the least restrictive placements for at-risk and vulnerable children and youth. Services will be provided by a team including Facilitators, Wrap Coaches, Family Support Specialists and graduate student interns.
