The purpose of this project was to design a family support program, identify potential funding sources and write a grant to fund a program to reduce child maltreatment recurrence (CMR) for LIFT a non-profit agency located in Los Angeles, California. Research indicates risk factors such as neglect, poverty, single parent households, parental substance use and history of child welfare services, place children at increased risk of CMR and that comprehensive interventions are needed to address the multiple issues associated with CMR. The proposed program aims to provide supportive services to help families achieve greater economic self-sufficiency, leading families to be able to provide for the basic needs of their children and reducing the likelihood of CMR. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not a requirement for the completion of this project. Implications for social work practice are discussed.
