HFW Youth Support Partner
Adessa Washington is a credentialed Youth Support Partner (YSP) for High Fidelity Wraparound (HFW) in Chester County, PA for Child and Family Focus. Adessa is also a certified co-trainer for the Youth and Family Training Institute (YFTI). Adessa joined the HFW workforce in February, 2011 and became credentialed in the YSP role. Through her work as an YSP she has found positive light to her negative life experiences and a greater purpose to maintain resiliency. Adessa is very passionate about the HFW process, uses the HFW model at home, and could not be more proud to be a part of the HFW workforce.
Understanding the importance of self-care, Adessa likes to turn to artwork (crochet, painting, pastels, and word art), music, dancing, and/or exercise. After gaining the understanding of the importance of natural supports and reciprocal relationships, Adessa has built a strong support network at home filled with friends and select family members. She enjoys most being an Aunt and a Godmother, but could not be more grateful for all of the love and joy she now has in her life.
