Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Family support program for families in the child welfare system: A grant proposal
by Gomez, Consuelo, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 70; 1517634
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a family support program at the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, Wateridge Office, Service Planning Area 6 (SPA 6), identify a potential funding source, and write a grant to fund the program for families that have experienced child neglect. Research indicates that a variety of environmental and parental risk factors, such as poverty, ethnicity, single parent household, mental health, substance abuse, and domestic violence have been identified for child neglect. Child characteristics, such as age and disability have also been identified as risk factors for child neglect. Studies on programs with behavioral and multi-component treatment approaches have shown to be successful in improving outcomes for families experiencing neglect. The proposed program aims for families to be self sufficient, to be reunited with their children, and to have reduced child neglect reoccurrence or re-entry into the child welfare system.
