John Burchard was a tireless advocate for children, youth, and families, and he was passionate about wraparound’s promise. As a professor at the University of Vermont, John dedicated much of the last two decades of his life to thinking about how to better support communities and programs to implement wraparound. He co-wrote One Kid at a Time about the Alaska Youth Initiative, led the evaluation of Project Wraparound in Vermont, and created the Wraparound Fidelity Index. This Resource Guide is dedicated to John’s memory.
