On March 30, 2021, representatives from Lighthouse Youth and Family Services shared lessons learned in developing and implementing the Watch Me Rise (WMR) program with young adults experiencing homelessness in Hamilton County, OH. The WMR program utilized the defining principles and four phases of the High Fidelity Wraparound process to help homeless young adults identify their goals and needs and develop a team of formal and natural supports. For more details about the project and intervention, see the project summary.
