Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The Latino immigrant families and involvement with child welfare system: A grant proposal
by Iniguez, Aracely, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 57; 1523242
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a program that provides culturally and linguistically sensitive services to Latino immigrant families involved with the child welfare system. Sources of funding were found and a grant application was completed. Through a literature review, risk factors for this population were identified including poverty, lack of healthcare, unemployment, documentation status issues, limited English skills, and low education levels. Also, challenges that the families encounter while involved with the child welfare system were analyzed.

The program seeks to reduce the number of families that re-enter the child welfare system. In addition, the program seeks to ensure that Latino immigrant families are economically secure, productive, happy and healthy while benefiting from the program's services. Through internet research and grant database search the Weingart Foundation was determined to be the most suitable match for the proposed program. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
