The purpose of this grant project was to design a family visitation program, identify potential funding sources and write a grant application for the agency Friends of the Family located in North Hills, California. This grant project provides a review of the literature on the risk factors that impact reunification rates among children and families; it also examine the importance of visitation and the effectiveness of visitation programs. The program, Reach out and Reunify (ROAR) is designed to increase visitation rates among families who receive family reunification services at DCFS. ROAR will also serve underserved areas of San Fernando, and Panorama City. The Stuart Foundation was selected to fund the visitation program to increase family reunification rates among children and families in the foster care system. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not a requirement for completion of this project. Implications for social work practice are discussed.
