WRAP Around Case Management

WRAP Around Case Management and Family Support services are coordinated with children and their families, through a team of professional and community supports.

PATH works to keep children in their homes and communities. Through WRAP Around Case Management and Family Support, PATH also helps youth quickly transition from residential treatment and mental health facilities while ensuring the best outcomes.

PATH Family Support parents are licensed treatment providers with significant training, education and life experiences. A key element in successfully supporting a child is ensuring the PATH family’s strengths meet the child’s and family’s needs.

WRAP Around Case Management is an evidenced based program that allows flexible real time responsiveness to a child’s and family’s needs.
