Care Management Services

Wraparound is a planning process that helps children, adolescents, young adults and their families realize their full potential. Wraparound uses people from the child’s and family’s life to create a Child and Family Team (CFT). These team members work together to help create an Individualized Service Plan (ISP) to address their needs in areas including, but not limited to: family, safety, emotional/psychological supports, education, legal issues, spiritual life, and medical concerns. We “wrap” services around children and their families to help them remain at home, in school and in their community.

Every youth referred to Caring Partners is assigned a Care Manager who is responsible for working directly with the youth and family. The Care Manager meets personally with you and the youth to learn how they can help. The Care Manager’s first job is to listen to you: to learn your concerns, identify your issues, and acknowledge your strengths. Your Care Manager will work with you to make sure that the support you receive meets the youth and your family’s needs.
Your Care Manager will meet with you and/or your child up to twice a month, depending on your individualized needs. Your Care Manager will also contact you and/or your child by phone at least once a week.
It depends on your individualized needs. Every 60-75 days your Child and Family Team (CFT) will meet to evaluate progress towards your family’s vision.
Caring Partners offers 24/7 on-call service to all enrolled youth.

Caring Partners services are provided at no cost to families.
