Wraparound News and Notes

By: Jon Randol, FCF Clinical Coordinator

We welcomed Justin Volk as our newest facilitator on 10/1/12. Justin comes to us from Clermont Mercy Hospital, where he worked in the Adult Psychiatry Unit. Justin will spend October in intensive training and will start actively facilitating in November.

We have received preliminary data from The Wraparound Fidelity Index. This is a measure that looks to see how our program follows the prescribed practice of wraparound as espoused by The National Wraparound Initiative. We scored at or above the national average on almost all of the indicators measured. This says we are being true to the model and off to a really great start.


  • Wraparound has engaged 200 families since August 2010
  • 30% of our current consumers are diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Cincinnati Children’s Hospital is one of our biggest referral sources
  • We currently have at least one active consumer from every school district in the County
  • We are currently working with 67 families and have had 16 new referrals since 7/1/12.
