The Systems of Care is the umbrella under which CASSP (Child and Adolescent Service System Program) and The Community Cares Program operates. Both CASSP and Community Cares are based upon the concept of Wraparound Services. The Wraparound concept is family driven and child/youth centered and the Wraparound team is instrumental in assisting the needs of the youth and family. The Wraparound team is made up of culturally and professionally diverse members and have volunteered to come together as a community to assist and empower children/adolescents and their families through services which promote individual worth and dignity. For the child/adolescent and family, it provides a positive structure which “wraps-around” the child to promote successful growth built on the strengths of the child/youth and family. The family and child/youth determine what services are needed, what life domains need to be enhanced, and what the primary focus of the team is. Together, the child, family and team create a plan of action based on your chalenges, your dreams, and your life. This service has provided great success in many communities around the United States and we are looking forward to providing this level of support to children and youth and their families in our area.
