The High Fidelity Wraparound process; known in Chester County Youth & Family Teams, is a needs-based planning process to improve the lives of children with complex needs and their families by empowering the families and youth to have their voices brought to their individualized plan. The individualized plan is child-centered and family-focused with the process focusing on strengthening the natural family, extended family and social supports for the child and family by developing a team to support the family throughout the process and in learning the skills of the model.


The Family Support Partner works with families and youth throughout the Chester County area who have agreed to participate in the Youth & Family Teams Process. The Family Support Partner will work as part of the Youth & Family Team providing the family support and guidance through the process, during meetings, and in completion of the individualized plans developed by the family. The Family Support Partner will work with families to develop their own team of supports (natural, community, and systems). The Family Support Partner will use their own life experiences to model for families how to navigate systems using their voice to meet their families’ needs while developing natural supports within their own community to reach their family vision.
