Recent Accomplishments

Highlights of Joint Initiatives for Youth & Families’ recent accomplishments:

This is a collaborative management process for children and youth involved with multiple agencies.   The Wraparound Model is the process by which children and their families are served. 

As a result of meeting identified outcomes through 2007 the county received in excess of $500,000.

In support of the Wraparound Model, JI served as fiscal agent for the Wraparound Coalition in a contract with Vroon VanDenBerg to provide Wraparound training, coaching and community education for high fidelity wraparound in the community.  Six entities contributed funds for the contract and included: WAY for Families (HB1451) El Paso County, HB1451 Teller County, Kids Crossing, Senate Bill 94, Pikes Peak Mental Health and Connect Care. 

You must be the change you wish to see.
