Children who are placed in foster care experience grief as the result of being separated from family members, and this can be overwhelming. Thus, these children will require the appropriate services to assist them with this difficult experience. The purpose of this project was to develop a program for foster children aged 5–12 who are coping with grief related to separation from family members. As part of the program, social workers will provide specialized services to grieving foster children. Additionally, services will entail individual and/or group counseling, as well as, meetings involving family, teachers, and school counselors. Services will be provided at a mental health agency. Social work implications are discussed. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
