Frequently Asked Questions about CRP

What is the CPS Reintegration Project?

The CPS Reintegration Project (CRP) provides home- and community-based services to a small number of youth who are involved in the CPS system and have mental health challenges. The goal of the Project is to reduce the number of youth involved in the Child Welfare System by helping families safely manage the mental health issues of the youth after discharge from a residential treatment center (RTC) or a therapeutic foster home.

CRP utilizes the Wraparound Process, which means that the youth and family take the lead in setting goals and deciding how to meet them. Each youth/family is assigned to a Care Coordinator (CC), who helps the family communicate their strengths and needs and facilitates access to community resources.

How does CRP work?

1. Referral

The CPS worker and their supervisor identify a youth who will be discharged within the next 90-120 days from RTC or therapeutic foster home. CPS and the treatment team have determined that the youth has made enough progress so that returning to the community is appropriate, as long as intensive services could be in place to support the youth & family. CPS identifies a potential caregiver, such as a birth parent, relative, or close family friend.

*All referrals to CRP must be submitted by CPS workers.

The CRP Process

CRP uses the Wraparound process.

The Wraparound Process is a team approach that works with the family as a whole, considering the needs of each family member. Wraparound is a way to improve the lives of children and families who have complex needs. With Wraparound, all the different people and systems involved with the child and family work together as a Child & Family Team to come up with a plan that fits the family. The team plans for and implements services and supports to address each child’s physical, emotional, social, educational, and family needs at home, school, and in the community.
