Hundreds and millions of dollars have been spent on training and assessing foster parents, also known as resource parents. However, there is little if any empirical evidence that any particular approach helps child welfare agencies meet the federal Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASF A) requirements for child safety, well-being, and permanency. The purpose of this thesis project was to write a grant proposal to support the implementation of the Child Welfare League of America's (CWLA) PRIDE Model of Practice to develop and support foster (resource) parents at a host agency in Los Angeles County. After implementation and an assessment of the implementation process (Phase 1), the agency/CWLA collaboration will be ready to conduct evidence-based research regarding outcomes (Phase II). Potential funding sources are identified. The actual funding and/or submission of this grant were not requirements for successful completion ofthis academic project.
