Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2001, $100,000)

This project will focus on children from birth to 18 years of age in Hancock and Washington County, Maine. The project goal is to ensure appropriate emergency care and linkage to long-term treatment and services to children involved in violent or traumatic situations, either as victims or witnesses. It is intended to lead them through the initial stages of the various networks of legal, medical, and social services offered through public and private agencies. To achieve this goal, the Rapid Response Program will build on an established network of public, private, and tribal agencies to work cooperatively for the sake of children's welfare; educate law enforcement personnel, social service providers, educators, and others on the effects of trauma on children; create a corps of specialists who will work directly with a child involved in a violent episode; establish a comprehensive and interactive list of services available in the target area for immediate care, and for building long-term resilience in children; and, work with community stakeholders to identify services and programs still needed.

Catholic Charities Maine has met the overall conditions for award and is conditionally recommended for funding; however, the program manager continues to work with the grantee on program design modifications to ensure a more cost effective program approach to meet the needs identified in the grant application and on performance goals in delivering services.
