The High Fidelity Wraparound (HFW) is an evidence-based model of care coordination that uses a highly structured, team-based, family-centered management process. The process involves intensive, individualized planning and managing for children and youth (ages 12-21) with serious social, emotional, or behavioral concerns.
The children and youth served by HFW are involved in multiple child service systems, such as behavioral health, child welfare, juvenile justice, and special education. The family is provided with weekly services from the HFW Team, consisting a Care Manager, Family Peer Advocate, and Youth Peer Advocate. In utilizing this wrap-around approach, several positive outcomes are possible such as sustained familial cohesion and stabilization, improved academic performance, and lower rates of hospitalization and residential treatment.
