Group home placement for children with serious emotional disturbance: A grant proposal project
by LeBlanc, Lorinda, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 56; 1466138
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to propose a group home for the placement of seriously emotionally disturbed children who have been victims of abuse and/or neglect. An extensive literature review has demonstrated the benefits of a small 6-bed single-family home environment and the lack of small residential group homes available in the community. This proposal was designed to help meet the increasing need for small residential group home facilities. The purpose of the home will be to provide children with a home-like environment within a neighborhood/community setting. Staff will include a licensed clinical social worker, a group home manager, and 24/7 supervision staff. Individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy (if applicable), and substance abuse counseling will be provided on a weekly basis. The home will be committed to empowering adolescents by creating hope and direction through programs that support and enhance their emotional, educational, physical, and spiritual development.
