The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant for a comprehensive program to provide culturally sensitive support services to help children and caregivers in Sonoma County who have been directly impacted by family separation due to immigration enforcement. An extensive literature review helped to identify the needs of the children and families affected by current United States immigration policies, as well as the barriers to and gaps in relevant support services.
The program aims to help minimize the trauma that children experience when they are separated from their parents or other caregivers. It plans to support their current caregivers by offering education-support services, referrals to collaborative agencies, and legal and financial education to help them navigate and utilize available community resources. A potential funder and committed were selected for implementation. The actual submission of the grant application was not required as part of the thesis process.
Legal Aid of Sonoma County was selected as the potential host agency. The National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative-Category II, Treatment and Service Adaptation Centers grant program was selected as the best potential funder for the proposed program.
