About Wraparound

High Fidelity Wraparound (HFWA) and Motivational Interviewing Informed Wraparound (MiiWrap ®)

High Fidelity Wraparound (HFWA) is a team-based planning process intended to provide individualized, coordinated, family-driven care that will meet the complex needs of children, youth, adults and families.

HFWA was originally developed by Portland University, and is a coaching and facilitation model that mobilizes the collective action of a committed group of family, friends, community, professional, and cross-system supports resulting in the creation of a plan of care for an individual or family. It is an evidence-based model that has proven incredibly effective throughout the social work field across North America and has been government mandated in over 40 states.   (high level outcomes/ ROI)

The model can be modified and embedded into existing programs in part or whole with incredible outcomes in the lives of clients and communities.

 It has been proven to achieve the following:

  • Reduces the length of government involvement
  • Increases indicators of long-term health and well-being
  • Helps facilitate behavioral change
  • Increases connection with family, friends and community for vulnerable individuals
  • Decreases high risk behaviours and activities (substance use, crime, exploitation, etc.)
  • Increases goal attainment (employment, school, independent living)
