Wraparound Services in Orange County
General Wraparound Program
Kinship Center offers intensive “Wraparound” services to children and youth at risk of placement in a high-level group home, and to their families. To be eligible for this program, a youth 1) must have been adjudicated as either a dependent or ward of the Court and must be at-risk for placement in a high level group home licensed by the California Department of Social Services (CDSS), or 2) be on formal probation and referred by WRIT, or 3) be designated as a youth receiving AB3632 Special Education Services and be considered Emotionally Disturbed and at-risk for placement, or 4) be receiving Adoption Assistance Program funding (AAP) and be at risk because of qualifying behaviors of being placed outside the home. All referrals must be made by the WRIT Team.
This program is a collaboration between Kinship Center and The Orange County Social Services Agency, Orange County Health Care Agency and Orange County Probation Department. Through this collaboration, a highly individualized approach is developed for each youth and his/her family. The goal is to maximize the capacity of a family to meet the youth’s needs, and to prevent or reduce residential placement, through the development of expanded family-based interventions. There is no charge to the family for this program.
