When children are separated from their parents by the child welfare department the events can be difficult for children, parents, and families. Often times, parents face many challenges and complying with visitation orders can be one of them. Review of literature suggest that frequent and appropriate visitation between parents and children is beneficial to the child's development imperative in family reunification. Unfortunately there are many challenges attempting to arrange visitations and often times visitation is not a priority. The purpose of this project was to design a weekend monitoring visiting program in the community of Service Planning Area 6 (SPA) of Los Angeles County that will provide flexible hours of operation, transportation services for children, and a family friendly environment for the visits to occur. In addition, the center will offer qualified monitoring services to families that will incorporate the Parent Child Interaction Therapy model. The Weingart Foundation was the most suitable funding source for this grant proposal. The actual funding and/or submission of this grant were not required as this grant was generated as part of an academic project.
