Services are provided within the intersection of the following frameworks.
- Community Connections’ Core Values: Strength in Diversity, Excellence and Continuous Improvement, Maximize Community Participation, Professional Integrity and Respect, & Collaboration and Shared Leadership.
- The Ten Principles of Wrap-a-round services provided by the National Wraparound Initiative which include: Family voice and Choice, Team Based, Natural Supports, Collaboration, Community Based, Culturally Competent, Individualized, Strengths-based, Persistence and Outcome based decision making, provide guidance for service approaches.
- Trauma Informed: All services are tailored to provide services and relationships with staff that seek to minimize behavioral and emotional triggers. We work to understand the events and situations that have shaped and influenced the client, especially those that are traumatic and adverse.
- Family Centered: Service delivery and interventions incorporate the entire family as much as possible and to the degree chosen by the individual. We believe that children are best served within the context of their family and seek to involve parents, and care givers in all levels of treatment.
The provision of psychiatric and medication services are grounded in the belief that in individual cases medication may be helpful in alleviating symptoms but that medication is most effective when utilized with learning new skills and healthy lifestyle choices. We do not provide psychiatric services independently from work with a clinician or other team members on building coping and life skills.
