Wraparound Services Program
The Contra Costa County Employment and Human Services Department (EHSD)Children and Family Services (CFS) Bureau is pleased to announce Request for Proposal (RFP) 1179. CFS is seeking one qualified community-based organization to to deliver a Wraparound Services Program in Contra Costa County. These services are necessary to increase foster care placement stability for children and youth, achieve better mental health and educational outcomes for foster youth, and maintain cost neutrality. Senate Bill (SB) 163 provides for service alternatives to short-term residential therapeutic programs (STRTPs) care through the development of expanded family-based service programs or Wraparound Services.
Wraparound Services is a strengths-based planning process that occurs in a team setting to engage with children, youth, and their families and shifts focus away from a traditional service-driven, problem-based approach to care and instead follows a strengths-based, needs-driven approach. The intent is to build on individual and family strengths to help families achieve positive goals and improve well-being. Wraparound is also a team-driven process. From the start, a child and family team is formed and works directly with the family as they identify their own needs and strengths. The team develops a service plan that describes specific strategies for meeting the needs identified by the family.
Program funding is estimated at $360,000 for the period July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022. Funding may include County and State funds.
The County has the ability to award the successful Bidder a 12-month contract with the possibility of contract renewal and/or contract extension based upon satisfactory performance and available funding.
