Synopsis: Kids Crossing is a private, non-profit child placement agency in Colorado. Wraparound is being implemented to achieve and support permanency for children and their birth families after the children have been placed into foster care. In almost every case, the children were placed into foster care Ð not due to their behavior Ð but because of parental abuse or neglect. The complexity of the reunification effort is magnified by the familyÕs involvement with multiple systems. Our data show significant improvement in reunification and long-term stability for the wraparound group when contrasted to a matched comparison group without wraparound.
