About Us

Welcome to WrapAround

Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by so many needs happening all at once? Are you involved in many services at the same time but they’re just not working for you–or you can’t get service? Do you feel like your ideas for your family or yourself are not being taken seriously?

WrapAround is a process that puts individuals and families with multiple needs in charge of their own lives. The goal is  to improve the lives of people who have complex needs. WrapAround helps you by forming a support team around you and/or your family which can be utilized to accomplish your needs. The support team includes the indivdual, family, child or children, friends and professionals who all work together to create an action plan with the main goal of bettering your life.

When our needs can be overwhelming...

WrapAround empowers communities to support people and families struggling with multiple challenges.
