About the Wraparound Process
WrapAround helps you and your family build a team of support based on the strengths and skills of trusted family, friends and community. It helps you make a plan to reach the goals important to you and your family. It is a voluntary process and includes monthly support team meetings. The planning process takes approximately twelve months.
A WrapAround facilitator works with you as you overcome challenges, develop ideas, and take steps towards your goals. The Catulpa Community Support Services’ Wraparound team includes a First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) Facilitator who can provide services that include cultural support, traditional teachings and medicines to First Nations, Inuit or Métis families.
During the first one to two months of the process, the facilitator works with your family to learn what is important to your, the changes you want to see and who you want on your team. During this time, you develop your goals.
Over the next six to eight months, teams meetings are held as you work together to build a family plan. Monthly meetings review your plan and how it is going.
During the final one to two months of the process, you begin to get ready for your new future. You are able to look back at how far you’ve come and plan for your next steps.
