Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Implementation of the Parent Partner Project to improve reunification rates in Sonoma County: A grant proposal
by Castaneda Martinez, Nohemi E., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 54; 1523317
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to identify a potential funding source and write a grant application to fund the Sonoma County Family, Youth, and Children's Services Division Parent Partner Program. The purpose of this program is to give additional support to parents going through the child welfare system.

Parents who have successfully navigated the system and reunified with their children will be trained and matched with client parents currently in the system. The parent partners will serve as mentors to the client parents under the supervision of the program manager. The expected outcomes are to increase Sonoma County's timely reunification rates and to decrease recidivism. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
