  • High Fidelity Wraparound


    We provide High Fidelity Wraparound services as a contractor through Magellan Healthcare.
  • High Fidelity Wraparound (HFWA) is a proven process to guide youth and families to achieve their hopes and dreams. It helps youth stay at home, in school and out of trouble by forming a team of people from different parts of a family's life.

    The process is designed to support and empower families to be self-sustainable with the help of the team they create. The process follows 10 guiding principles as the beacon to everything it practices."

  • 10 Principles

  • 1. Family Voice and Choice: Planning is grounded in family members’ perspectives, and the team strives to provide options and choices such that the plan reflects family values and preferences.

  • 2. Team Based: Team consists of individuals agreed upon by the family and committed to them through support and service relationships.

  • 3. Natural Supports: Team includes members drawn from family members’ networks of interpersonal and community relationships.

  • 4. Collaboration: Team members work cooperatively and share responsibility for developing, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating a single wraparound plan.

  • 5. Community-Based: Team implements service and support strategies that take place in the most inclusive, most accessible, and least restrictive settings possible; and that safely promote child and family integration into home and community life.

  • 6. Culturally Competent: Wraparound process demonstrates respect for and builds on the values, preferences, beliefs, culture, and identity of the child/youth and family and their community.
    7. Individualized: Team develops and implements a customized set of strategies, supports, and services to achieve goals laid out in the wraparound plan.

  • 8. Strengths Based: Process and plan identify, build on, and enhance the capabilities, knowledge, skills, and assets of the child and family, their community, and other team members.

  • 9. Persistence: Despite challenges, the team persists in working toward the goals included in the wraparound plan until the team reaches agreement that a formal wraparound process is no longer needed.

  • 10. Outcome Based: Team ties goals and strategies of the plan to observable or measurable indicators of success, monitors progress in terms of these indicators, and revises them accordingly.
