The purpose of this project was to develop a grant proposal to fund the creation of a mental health services program for the staff of Rosemary Children's Services, a group home located in Los Angeles County. The literature review describes the high risk of traumatization group home staff face working with traumatized youth and the lacking supports for group home workers. This grant proposes the need for an employment position entitled the Staff Mental Health Supervisor to provide mental health services and supports for staff, including screenings, psychoeducation, individual and group counseling, and trauma informed training. Research for potential grant funders led to the identification of the Mark Hughes Foundation as the source from which funds for this program will be requested. Actual submission and/or funding of the grand were not required for the successful completion of this project.
