Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Recruitment, training, and support for foster parents of children birth to 4 years: A grant proposal
by Dominguez, Yesenia C., M.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 58; 1527917
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this thesis was to write a grant and locate a funder for the creation of a new program for recruitment, training and support for foster parents in the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services in order to increase the number of homes for children birth to 4 years. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the most effective way to implement the program.

The project aims to provide age specific recruitment strategy that incorporates current foster parents, the development of coping skills for foster and adoptive parents through increased parent education and intensive training focused around trauma and child development, as well as a 24-hour support "warm line" for foster parents. Actual submission and or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
