Project Title
Trauma-informed Therapeutic Interventions Program
Assisting Sick and Abused Children
Evanston, IL

The Rice Center offers high-level treatment and programming for extremely vulnerable children who are in need of 24 hour care. The Trauma-informed Therapeutic Interventions Program, given to each new child during initial mental health assessment (within 30 days of intake), and to each current client at the time of their treatment plan reviews (every three months), will dramatically improve therapeutic services at the Rice Center. The goal of the program is to enable traumatized children to move back into the community as a part of a stable family, as a participating member of a mainstream school, and as a fully contributing member of society.
