The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to provide Latino immigrant parents involved in the child welfare system a support group which assists them during the family reunification and/or family maintenance process. An in-depth literature review regarding Latino immigrants represented in the child welfare system was performed in order to gain knowledge about prevalent risk factors, child maltreatment allegation trends, cultural characteristics, and effective interventions. Latino immigrant parents involved in the child welfare system encounter many barriers which include but are not limited to poverty, language limitations, cultural differences, legal status, inadequate employment, and educational background. The proposed support group is intended to enhance parental knowledge about the child welfare system and increase coping and empowerment skills of the Latino immigrant population. The actual funding and submission of this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of this academic project.
