IMPROVING OUTCOMES THROUGH COORDINATED CARE
Conscience Community Network (CCN) – a network of Illinois nonprofit service providers – is collaborating with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) to provide Wraparound programming to youth and families. CCN provides enrolled youth and families with intensive case coordination, development and facilitation of a Family Team, and timely access to needed services, including evidence-based treatments.
How It Works
Wraparound is a goal-driven process that utilizes a youth or family-centered “Wrap Plan” for addressing needs, and a support team who coordinates their care, known as the “Family Team.” During enrollment, Family Team meetings occur at least one time per month.
The Family Team develops a Wrap Plan and identifies Family Team members, who typically include youth, parent/guardian, service providers, schools, extended family and friends, and others chosen by the family as helpful supports. The Family Team Facilitator facilitates this process.
The Family Team owns the Wrap Plan and contributes to its successful completion. Additionally, the Family Team provides ongoing support and encouragement for the family after completion of the program.
The Dually Involved Youth Project aims to:
Safely support youth within their communities
Prevent future criminal behavior
Help youth transition to adulthood
