2 A System of Care is a child-centered, family-focused plan of care in which the needs of the child and family dictate the types of services provided. System of Care involves agencies, programs, and services that are working together to address individual family needs. Definition of a System of Care
3 System of care is, first and foremost, a set of values and principles that provides for systems reform on behalf of children, youth and families.
Community-Based Child and Family-Focused Interagency Collaboration Cultural Competence Individualized & Strength Based Accountability
In Systems of Care full family participation requires mutual respect and meaningful partnership between families and professionals. Families are involved and their voice is valued in all levels of Systems of Care.
Interagency Collaboration within Systems of Care engages all child and family serving agencies at all levels of the public, private, and faith based sectors.
Systems of Care services are respectful and responsive to the child and family’s (cultural, ethnic, religious and spiritual) values and practices.
Services are delivered in the community where the child and family live, such as a school or home.
Every child and family enrolled in Systems of Care participates in an individualized plan of care that focuses on the needs, strengths, and challenges of the child and family.
Systems of Care ensure outcome data is collected, analyzed, and reported on the individual child and family services system, performance, and financial efficiencies.
11 Wraparound is a practice approach that can be applied to children and families with or at risk for service needs – not just to those with the most serious and complex problems. Pires, S. & Lazear, K Human Service Collaborative. Washington, D.C. Adapted from the National Wraparound Initiative, Portland, OR Unconditional Care Wraparound puts system of care values and principles into practice for service planning and provision.
12 Show evidence of effectiveness through experience of key stakeholders (e.g., families, youth, providers, administrators) and outcomes data. Examples include: Family Support and Education Wraparound Approach Mobile Response and Stabilization Services Family Group Conferencing Intensive In-Home Services Child and Youth Respite Services Mental Health Consultation Services Independent Living Skills and Supports Positive Behavioral Supports Pires, S.

16 Wraparound is “a planning process that results is an individualized set of community services and natural supports that are for a child and family to achieve a positive set of outcomes.” Bruns, B. & Hoagwood, K.

18 A Well Documented Service and Support Plan Respectfully and thoughtfully documents the family’s experience. Uses the family’s and youth’s own words to create a family and youth vision. Is written from strengths, addresses culture and linguistics. Lazear, K. (2006) Wraparound Maryland. Human Service Collaborative: Washington, D.C. Adapted from The National Wraparound Initiative (2004). (continued)
Identifies needs that moves the family and youth closer to their vision. Identifies strength-based, creative and practical strategies to meet the chosen needs, not just existing categorical services. Looks at successful formal and usual strategies from the past. A Well Documented Service and Support Plan (continued)
20 A Well Documented Service and Support Plan Addresses mandates while staying family-driven and youth-guided. Spells out a crisis/safety plan that moves from least restrictive to more restrictive. Builds a family-based team rather than a system-based team Lazear, K. (2006) Wraparound Maryland. Human Service Collaborative: Washington, D.C. Adapted from The National Wraparound Initiative (2004).
Includes community and natural supports Attends to transition out of the formal wraparound process. Includes all necessary signatures of participation and commitment. Reflects what was said in the child and family team meeting. A Well Documented Service and Support Plan
