Abstract (Summary)

Kinship caregivers caring for children who cannot live with their birth parents face many challenges. Frequently, they have limited or no access to quality supportive services, particularly those sensitive to the needs of Latino kinship caregivers. Within Los Angeles County, there are few kinship care services and even fewer programs designed to meet the needs of Latino, Spanish speaking kinship caregivers.

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund a program that would empower Latino kinship families by providing caregivers access to support systems, resources, and information through support groups and training seminars in the Los Angeles area. The goal of this program is to improve the well-being of kinship caregivers and children in their care, and to maintain safety and permanency for those children. This project will be offered by Grandparents as Parents. The selected funding source was the National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
