Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $186,203)

The Quinault Indian Nation's Forensic Interview Project will be based out of the Mental Health Program of the QIN's Health Services Department in Taholah, Washington (Quinault Indian Reservation). The goal of our Forensic Interview Project is to provide services for victims of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. Services will be available to any child under age 18 in our catchment area who is the victim of abuse or who has witnessed domestic violence. The project will serve those children residing in reservation communities. The project will protect children by enhancing the prosecutability of offenders in abuse cases, and it will also enhance the effectiveness of mental health services to these victims, as they may enter therapy earlier than they might otherwise.CA/NCF
