The purpose of this study was to determine the impact wraparound services has on Riverside County dependents that have a history of running away. The wraparound process is characterized by planning and problem solving, respect for values, culture, and expertise. It includes collaboration and consists of family driven and youth guided goal structure and decisions. It focuses on individualization, opportunities for choice, evaluating strategies, and recognition. This research was conducted, studying six closed cases provided by Olive Crest, a non-profit agency. The results from this study can contribute to social work practice by enhancing social workers' knowledge and providing new insights when working with Riverside County dependents that chronically run away.
