Latino children are at a heightened risk of child welfare intervention due to federal policies. Currently, many child welfare agencies lack the capacity to address specific issues related to non-English speaking, limited proficient English and immigrant fathers' cultural issues which can contribute to fathers' involvement with their children. The purpose of this project was to create a culturally sensitive fatherhood support program for fathers currently involved in the child welfare system, as well as to identify a potential funding source for this program. An extensive literature review was conducted to identify appropriate program provisions and gather information required by the proposed funder, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. If funded, this pilot program would address a service delivery gap within the geographic community and improve father-child relationships and reunification outcomes for these families. Submission and/or funding of this grant was not requirement for successful completion of this project.
