The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and to write a grant to develop a program for children who haven been affected by domestic violence. An extensive literature review was conducted that showed the negative affects that domestic violence has on children's emotional, social, and physical functioning; as well as the benefits of early childhood intervention programs. The proposed children's program will be compromised of psycho educational therapy groups, individual counseling, and case management. The Liz Claiborne Foundation was located as the most suitable grant for the program. The children's program's goals are to build self-esteem, strengthen the mother-child relationship, increase safety, and increase positive coping skills. If funded, this program would help to provide the necessary services to children who have been affected by domestic violence as well as to help prevent the cycle of violence from continuing in the next generation.
