Systems of Care is a set of services and supports for youth and families who have health or other challenges. It is also a program for youth and families that are at risk of having challenges. These services help families overcome barriers in the system and function better in life.

Youth at the following levels of care are automatically accepted into Wraparound:
If terms are not agreed to after automatic acceptance, an agreement to decline Wraparound services must be signed.
Each county has their own referral packet. However, any youth, family, provider or community member can fill out a referral packet (click on your county’s link below for a referral packet).
When your referral packet is completed and submitted to the county, someone from the program will contact you to orient you to the Wraparound Review Committee. If you make a referral, it is expected that you will present to the review committee.
The committee will review your referral and decide if it is approved based on program criteria and available space.
