Services

Can my child and family receive services through Clermont County Family & Children First?

HIGH FIDELITY WRAPAROUND:

The High Fidelity Wraparound process is a tool for building constructive relationships and support networks among youth with emotional/behavioral challenges, their families, teachers and other caregivers. This process, which is based on a family-centered, strength-based philosophy of care, is used to guide service planning for children with or at-risk of emotional and behavioral disabilities and their families. In wraparound, a team works to identify the underlying needs, interests, and limitations of families and service providers, and to develop a plan that addresses these interests using natural, community supports whenever possible (Eber, Nelson and Miles, 1997; Burchard 2000).

Eligibility:

  • The child or legal guardian must be a resident of Clermont County
  • The child must be birth to 21 years of age
  • The child must have needs in 2 or more systems
  • The child must be receiving services from multiple systems or agencies or be eligible to receive services from multiple systems or agencies
  • The child must display a significant disruption at school, in the community and/or at home

Wraparound youth and families may have access to an array of services including parent peer support, respite, in-home supports, as well as the wide spectrum of services already available through existing service providers.

The High Fidelity Wraparound referral form is available by clicking HERE. Referrals are accepted from families, schools, agencies and providers. Referrals can be faxed to 513-732-7491 or emailed to Rachel Sorg, Wraparound Coordinator, at rsorg@clermontcountyohio.gov.

SERVICE COORDINATION:

What is service coordination?

Similar to wraparound, service coordination is a planning process that is used to help coordinate services for youth and their families. During the process, a team of individuals work with the family to develop goals and meet those goals through accessing resources provided by local service agencies. Service coordination is less intensive than wraparound, and is designed to assist families who are either experiencing their first crisis or are needing to gain support from local agencies for the first time.

Can my family receive support through service coordination?

The most basic eligibility criteria for service coordination is that the youth and/or legal guardian must be a resident of Clermont County, the youth must be 0-21 years old, and the youth must have a need in 2 or more systems.  Service coordination is used to help families who are either experiencing crisis for the first time, or are needing to and are unsure how to access support from agencies and providers.

INFORMATION & REFERRAL:

What is Information & Referral?

Unlike service coordination and High Fidelity Wraparound, the purpose of Information & Referral services is to connect youth and families to local community service providers.  During this process, an assigned Facilitator will work with the youth and family in identifying community services to meet their specific needs and accessing resources to help overcome barriers that may be hindering linkage to services.

Can my family receive support through Information & Referral?

Eligibility for Information & Referral services includes:

  • Youth and/or legal guardian must be a resident of Clermont County
  • Youth must be 0-21 years old
  • Youth must present a need to access 2 or more local community services
