Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Keeping families together: A grant proposal
by Cruz, Sandra, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 55; 1527691
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund the program, Keeping Families Together, which will provide workshops for undocumented Latino parents who are at risk of becoming involved with the child welfare system because of their legal status in the United States. The overarching goal of the program is to decrease the number of Latino children entering the child welfare system by educating undocumented Latino parents on cultural norms concerning child abuse and prevention, community resources, and how to formulate a safety plan for their children in case they are detained or deported. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant by the California Community Foundation was not required to successfully complete this project.
