Wraparound Evaluation and Research Team

SMART-Wrap (Short Message Assisted Responsive Treatment for Wraparound) aims to provide a low-burden, reliable approach for obtaining feedback from caregivers and youth enrolled in Wraparound and feed those data back to care coordinators, supervisors, and managers.
