Peoria Public Schools invites community to tour the Wraparound Center

The Peoria community is invited to an open house at the Wraparound Center on Thursday, March 7 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The Wraparound Center, located on the Latrobe Street side of Trewyn School, opened its doors last October. The one-stop shop provides greater Peoria individuals and families support systems and resources within their community. The goal is to keep individuals from transitioning to a higher, more intensive level of care or to successfully transition from a higher level of care back to stability.
Currently the Wraparound Center has eight community partners:
The Center for Youth and Family Solutions
Chestnut Health Systems
OSF (STRIVE) Trauma Recovery Program
Positive Health Solutions
Unity Point Methodist
HULT Center for Healthy Living
Through these partners, Peoria residents can access counseling services, substance abuse services, a food pantry, financial education and counseling, STI/HIV/AIDS testing and counseling, and much more. In addition to these in-house partners, Wraparound Center case managers connect individuals and families with external community services and resources.
The Wraparound Center evolved from Peoria Public Schools’ focus on the Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) needs of our students, and the vital mental, emotional and physical health and safety needs of our community, particularly the 61605 zip code. Many of the services we offer were unavailable to neighborhood residents with limited transportation options.
We believe the services offered at the Wraparound Center are a necessary first-step in strengthening our community and achieving our vision: educating and graduating each student to be prepared and inspired to contribute to the world.
Please take the time to visit on March 7 so we can share this community resource.
