by Carter, Maureen I., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 62; 1523274
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to identify potential funding sources and complete a grant application for the proposed project, which is designed to promote better communication between Mendocino County Child Welfare Services and the Mendocino Children's Welfare Emergency Shelter located in Ukiah, California. This will be accomplished by the implementation of the Sequest Workflow System and the Children and Adolescent Needs and Strengths-Mental Health assessment tool. Use of these tools will increase accessibility and accuracy of information about the youth and their family. Having this pertinent information will help child welfare workers place youth in homes that will meet their needs and support their strengths. Improving the communication between the child welfare social workers and the Mendocino Children's Welfare Emergency Shelter will enable the child welfare social workers to make well-matched post placements. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not required for successful completion of this project.
