The Wraparound Facilitator in the CMH/SEDW Wraparound Program is responsible for providing services consistent with the wraparound model of service delivery to families that meet eligibility criteria for the CMH/SEDW Wraparound Program. As part of this process, the Wraparound Facilitator will help families to:
- Identify the strengths and resources of the family;
- Identify the needs of the family across all life domains;
- Develop a Child and Family Team comprised primarily of persons accessible to the family in their natural support network;
- Based on the strengths and resources of the family, facilitate the development and implementation of individualized Wraparound Plans and Crisis Plans that address the needs of the family;
- Link families with existing “categorical” community services based on their needs and preferences;
- Modify the composition of the Child and Family Team and the content of the Wraparound and Crisis Plans as needed based on the changing needs of the family.
Services are delivered in the home or community based on the needs and preferences identified by the family. In addition to providing family-centered services, the Wraparound Facilitator is responsible to help families to develop collaborative relationships with other human service organizations and people or agencies in the community who can help to enhance and maintain a viable support network for the family after services have ended. The Wraparound Facilitator is responsible to help coordinate and integrate services that are provided to families by multiple service providers and to identify and eliminate barriers to effective service delivery.
