Wraparound: Building a circle of support.
Wraparound builds on the strengths and resources of the family. Our Wraparound facilitator helps the family develop a team of supports — which could include friends, family, members of a faith community — as well as professionals involved in a helping role. This team develops an action plan, coordinates activities, problem-solves, and shares resources to meet the family’s needs.
Children and families referred to the Wraparound program have complex needs across multiple domains, including but not limited to housing, education, health, mental health, and recreation.
Wraparound is delivered in partnership with the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa and Coordinated Access & Referral.
Intersections: Partnering with the police on early intervention.
Crossroads is proud to partner with Ottawa Police Services to offer the Intersections Program. Intersections is an evidence-informed early intervention program for children up to the age of 13 years old with suspected mental health, developmental, and/or substance abuse issues who are at risk of becoming involved with the justice system. A child and youth worker helps the identified child and their family access and coordinate community support services to reduce and prevent further interaction with police services and the justice system.
