House Bill 1451
Did you know . . . youth who receive Wraparound are less likely to engage in subsequent at-risk and delinquent behavior.
Funded by the Colorado Department of Human Services, El Paso County House Bill 1451 supports a collaborative management process for services addressing the needs of youth, ages birth-21, involved in multiple community-based agencies.
El Paso County HB1451 embraces the Wraparound Process as a way to improve the lives of youth with complex needs, and their families. The Wraparound Process ensures that a family plan is:
- Developed by a family-centered team
- Individualized to reflect the strengths and culture of the child and family
- Needs-driven rather than services driven
Participants in El Paso County HB1451, ages birth-21, have current or past involvement in at least two partner agencies. Partner agencies in El Paso County include:
El Paso County Department of Human Services
El Paso County Public Health
Division of Youth Corrections – Southern Region
Pikes Peak BOCES
School Districts: #2 Harrison, #3 Widefield, #8 Fountain-Ft. Carson,
#11 Colorado Springs, #14 Manitou Springs, #20 Academy, & #49 Falcon
Fourth Judicial District Probation
Fourth Judicial District Trial Courts
Colorado Health Networks
Joint Initiatives for Youth and Families (fiscal agent)
Many of the HB1451 partner agencies are also JI members.
Outcomes of this initiative include:
- Reduced duplication and fragmentation of services provided
- Increased quality, appropriateness, and effectiveness of services
- Cost-sharing among partners leading to cost reductions for services provided
This initiative employs one full time Coordinator.
The El Paso County HB1451 Training Institute is pleased to provide trainings throughout the year as one of the many ways to support professionals who are serving multi-system-involved youth and their families. See our News and Events section for any trainings that may be upcoming.
