Child Protective Services Reintegration Project (CRP)-Wraparound
Family Support and Placement Stabilization Programs
What: CRP provides home- and community-based services to help children/adolescents with mental health challenges transition back to the community from out-of-home placements, such as residential treatment centers (RTCs), hospitals, foster homes, and shelters. How: After a youth is determined eligible for this program, a care coordinator works with the caregiver, school, RTC, and other professionals to develop a wraparound plan and services to help ensure a successful placement. Once this is in place, the youth returns home and weekly team meetings are held to make sure all of the youth's needs are addressed. This phase can occur for up to 6 months. After, 6 months or more of ongoing support is provided to the youth and family. As the youth makes improvements and the family demonstrates they are able to meet his or her needs, services are reduced until the youth graduates from services. The youth will remain connected to community supports.
