Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $268,304)

Bethesda Home for Boys (BHB) serves approximately 90-100 boys daily, between the ages of 12-18 through its residential and school based programs. BHB will upgrade both residential and school programs through a concentrated effort directed to expand the treatment and educational capacities of its professional staff, and by offering new orientations to all programs directed to students and parents. In an effort to address school failure and grade retention, a lack of appropriate adult role models, and behavioral and social skills deficits, BHB will offer several new training modalities that are researched and evidenced based to strengthen desired outcomes for the all male student body. Training modalities in trauma based theory, gender specific instructional techniques, an expanded effort in drug and alcohol prevention, and increased professional sensitivity to the needs of families and parents served, will offer Bethesda youth an aligned protocol of care. Performance measures will include improved numbers of youth completing the program, improved grades, educational progression, improved consumer satisfaction by boys and parents, and a diminishing number of unplanned discharges to more intensive levels of care.
