* UPLIFT WRAPAROUND PROGRAM: Honored as "Program of the Year" in 1998 by the California Mental Health Advocates for Children & Youth. Also honored as winner of the "Special Program - Children - Award of Excellence" by the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare in 1999. UPLIFT (Uniting Partners to Link and Invest in Families of Today) provides highly individualized, "wraparound" services to seriously disturbed children and adolescents who would otherwise be served in intensive out-of-home placements. In wraparound care, individualized services are wrapped around youngsters living with birth, adoptive, foster parents, or in specialized foster care or independent living settings. The program's goal is to build and maintain a satisfactory lifestyle and prevent a more restrictive and more costly out-of-home placement.
