June 2020:WRAP IT UP!
WIN Georgia Care Management Entity (CME)
“The wraparound team believed our daughter had what it took to succeed and helped us create an action plan to see it come to pass. Now, she is thriving again in school and wants to become a flight attendant.”
What’s the Difference?
Many organizations identify as wraparound service providers while WIN Georgia CME identify as providers of High-Fidelity Wraparound Care. At face value, there may not seem much of a difference. Both provide teamwork, collaboration, goal setting, etc. However, High-Fidelity Wraparound offers a customized plan of action that families can modify as they progress and can develop for years to come, rather than a set period of time. Additionally, the focus is on care and not on case management services.
WIN Georgia staff are highly trained to provide one of the state’s finest services to families with children and adolescents who struggle with mental &/or behavioral challenges. Children and adolescents experiencing serious emotional disturbance often have very complicated plans from several different systems.
High Fidelity Wraparound eagerly provides assistance that will help the family and child coordinate their services and supports in a way that empowers them to meet their needs as they define them. High Fidelity Wraparound is a structured, team-based process that uses an evidence-based, nationally-recognized model that partners with families to use their voice and strengths to develop a family-driven plan that promotes self-advocacy.
KEY ELEMENTS OF HIGH-FIDELITY WRAPAROUND CARE
Grounded in a strength’s perspective.

Determined by families.
