The 3 Rivers Wraparound Learning Center provides training for each role that operates within the wraparound process. Each offered training is designed to teach team members the skills needed to fulfill their role on the team, as well as provide new tools to equip team members to work successfully with families. Our training also emphasizes how each role fits into the greater wraparound philosophy to create cohesive teams and in turn positively impact families.
What is the 3 Rivers Wraparound Program?
3 Rivers Wraparound Program partners with families and communities to coordinate care and supportive services for at-risk youth in Benton and Franklin Counties in Washington State. The vision of this unique program is to demonstrate that youth who have challenging emotional and behavioral health needs can be best served in their own home within their own communities, using a team approach that is strengths-based, family centered, and cost-effective. The program will coordinate the efforts of system service providers with natural supports identified by the family and the youth in a way that builds on family strengths and promotes the family’s security and well-being.. The 3 Rivers Wraparound Program is operated within Lutheran Community Services Northwest and has been a successful program for the last 13 years.
