The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to fund a training program for foster parents who are facing challenges with foster children under their care. The goal of this project is to help increase knowledge about best-practices in parenting children with challenging behaviors, while decreasing foster parent stress through self-care techniques. The program, unlike others, will give insight on the significance of attachment and how it relates to behaviors exhibited by foster children.
The Ralph M. Parson Foundation was selected as the potential fonder due to its commitment to enhancing the lives of disadvantaged populations and improving the well-being of children. The host agency, Aspiranet, will expand their services to include the proposed foster parent training program. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of the project.
