Wraparound is our team strategy to “wrap” an at-risk family with support, coaching and mentorship. Each member of the family can be assigned an age-appropriate “partner” whose primary purpose is to walk side-by-side with them in the midst of their crisis — and to equip them with tools and resources that will help them communicate and have healthy interactions, strengthen family bonds, and provide a connection to their own community.
Many of these families are referred to Olive Crest by social workers, probation officers, and healthcare organizations. Their situations are desperate, often involving drugs, gangs, and incarceration. Ultimately, the goal is to provide constant support that will set each family on a course for success and keep them together.
Through the support of caring people like you, families in this program enjoy a 70% success rate. And we’re working every day toward more strong, healthy families!
