Abstract (Summary)

Family violence is a quiet epidemic currently gaining greater attention and notoriety in American society. The organization seeking funding, Human Options, has provided comprehensive programs for family violence for 27 years, but now faces budget shortfalls. Social workers are called upon to pursue social change and provide access to needed information, services, and resources; particularly for vulnerable and oppressed peoples-even in economically difficult times. Families victimized by family violence are often vulnerable and oppressed even after the violence has ended due to systemic issues, such as contact with the justice system or issues of intergenerational violence. The Child Wellbeing and Stabilization program is a thesis grant proposal to provide funding to implement the following objectives: provide on-campus interventions for 40 children through school groups, provide psycho-educational parenting groups services for 50 parents, and provide crisis stabilization services for 50 adults.
