Systems of Care & Wraparound Initiative (SOCWI)

This project provides training, workforce development and systemic support for the statewide implementation of a Wraparound service delivery model for children living in Oregon. Core principles and values associated with Wraparound, as outlined through the National Wraparound Initiative, serve as practical model to operationalize a Systems of Care approach across youth, adult and family serving systems.

Systemic successes demonstrated by Oregon’s Statewide Children’s Wraparound Initiative serve as a useful and relevant guide for CCOs. SCWI had 3 demonstration sites serving 240 youth and findings suggest that within a year of implementation, costs for children’s mental health services were significantly lower relative to Non-SCWI sites. During the years studied, SCWI sites also had a much smaller increase in overall costs than Non-SCWI sites. The stated goals of CCOs – better health, better care and lower costs – are closely aligned with those of Wraparound and SOC. To learn more, view the handouts below.
