"The idea is to build consensus so that people in the community - residents and service providers - have a voice. Our role is to facilitate the coming together of these two groups. We want to make the resources that already exist accessible to people who need those resources"

The South County Wraparound Project is a collaboration between the Institute for Community Collaborative Studies (CSUMB) and South Santa Clara County service providers and community members designed to engage the community and local agencies to develop a community-based, culturally appropriate Wraparound model.
It is intended to engage the community in a consensus building and planning process to evaluate the feasibility of implementing an exemplary, culturally-appropriate practice for Latino children and adolescents with co-occurring severe mental disorders and substance abuse disorders while protecting and including the target population in the planning process.
