Wrap Around Team: Surrey

Wrap Around Team: Surrey

In Surrey’s highways and byways they are known as the Wrap Around Team – 15 school liaison staff and their RCMP associates who help juveniles rated at extreme risk for homelessness, addiction, gang affiliation or sexual exploitation. The ultimate risk is death. But Jon Ross, a school district social worker, likes to contemplate the successes, which far outweigh the disasters.

The Wrap Around Team has applied to The Vancouver Sun’s Adopt-A-School program for $10,000 as an emergency fund to help families on their caseload.
