The purpose of this project was to design a comprehensive school-based program for children who exhibit trauma-related symptoms in schools, identify a potential funding source, and complete a grant application for children who experienced maltreatment at the Ontario-Montclair School District (OMSD). Multiple studies in the literature indicated that child maltreatment affect the child’s overall well-being and educational outcomes and experiences. By reviewing the literature, the writer identified effective evidence-based practices used for this targeted population, which helped the writer in designing a comprehensive mental health program including trauma-informed care trainings and Cognitive Behavioral Interventions for Trauma in Schools (CBITS). The funding source that was selected was the Kaiser Foundation as this foundation recognizes that good health includes social and economic well-being and thriving schools. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not a requirement for completion of this project. Implications for social work practice are discussed.
