GETTING STARTED

ENROLLMENT

Enrollment in Wraparound Milwaukee is voluntary.  Some Youth enrolled in Wraparound Milwaukee have a Court Order to participate in the program. Other youth are enrolled based solely on family choice (REACH Program).

 CARE COORDINATION

Local health care agencies provide Care Coordination (case management) services for Wraparound Milwaukee families. Wraparound Milwaukee tries to match the youth and family to a Care Coordinator that will work best based on their needs.  You can expect to hear from you Care Coordinator shortly after enrollment in the program.

One of the first tasks for the Care Coordinator is to set a their first meeting with you to discuss their role and talk about the what you can expect from the Wraparound Program.

 

 CHILD AND
FAMILY
TEAM
MEETINGS

Within your first  month in the program, your Care Coordinator will set a “child and family team meeting” to begin the process of developing a “plan of care” which includes identifying family strengths and needs.   Plan also includes putting together detailed plan to help manage crisis situations.  Part of the planning process includes identification and authorization of services that will help the enrolled youth and family meet the needs that have been identified in the plan of care.

This first meeting includes putting together detailed written plan to help manage crisis situations.  Part of the planning process includes identification and authorization of services that will help the enrolled youth and family recognize and effectively handle stressful moments and events.
