Although each county determines the group of children and families they serve through wraparound, some basic criteria must be met:
- children must have been adjudicated wards or dependents of the juvenile court or are receiving services through AB 3632
- children must have been placed or are at risk of being placed in an RCL 10-14 placement
Children are returned or maintained in their community and with family (including family of origin, foster families, relatives and adoptive families), by providing the individualized services needed by the child and family. Built on family strengths and utilizing a child and family team, the child and family needs are answered by both formal and informal resources.
