Wraparound supports refers to those services that help youth facing challenges become self-sufficient and thrive. These might include: education and workforce training, vocational rehabilitation, health and mental health services, food, housing, transportation, childcare, mentoring, and counseling. It is critical to coordinate these services and supports across systems, customizing them for each youth. Young people also need to be consistently supported by a caring, competent adult to help them navigate programs and services.
