The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to fund a program that would provide services to children who are placed in foster care after their parents have been detained or deported. An extensive literature review was performed to identify an appropriate program that would provide these foster children with mental health services to help them cope with the trauma of witnessing their parents' deportation, being separated from them, and being placed in foster care. The special program is expected to decrease these children's symptoms of PTSD, decrease behavioral problems, enhance coping skills to deal with ambiguous loss, and increase academic success.
The Stuart Foundation was selected as the best funder for this project. The actual submission of the grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
