Community Based Programs

NFI VT offers a broad range of clinical, educational, support and outreach services in home and community-based settings.  Serving children, youth, and their families in their homes and communities enhances opportunities for client and family engagement and collaboration within their local provider network.

Wraparound Programs

Wraparound is an intensive, individualized care management process for youths with complex emotional, behavioral needs, and multiple agency involvement.  Clients/families benefit from a coordinated care planning process that produces a single plan of care that engages other agencies and providers. The wraparound process strives to ensure children and youth grow up in their homes and communities. In an effort to support the client/family goals, clinical case managers help to coordinate activities, formal interventions, community services and interpersonal support and assistance provided by friends, kin, and other people drawn from the family’s social networks.

The wraparound process is implemented in a 4-stage strength-based process:

  1. Engagement and team preparation
  2. Initial plan development
  3. Plan implementation
  4. Transition

  • Collaboration
