Joint Planning Team

The Joint Planning Team (JPT) utilizes the High Fidelity Wraparound model to develop a team based, "family driven" approach to service coordination. HSAO is one of two agencies in Allegheny County chosen to provide this service.

JPT Facilitators work with youth and families to help build a team of professionals and natural supports, who create a plan to assist families in reaching their vision for a better future. JPT works in collaboration with the Department of Human Services and Allegheny Family Network to offer Youth Support Partners to youth 14 years or older and Family Support Partners to any caregiver with a child involved in JPT.


All Joint Planning Team referrals are authorized by Community Care Behavioral Health Organization. Eligibility criteria includes:

  • Multi System involvement
  • History and/or risk of out of home placement
  • Intensive Mental Health service History
