The purpose of the grant proposal was to collaborate with a host agency to incorporate respite care as an additional support for post-adoption families adopting from the Los Angeles child welfare system. A literature review was conducted to examine the needs and challenges of post adoptive families as well as the benefits of respite care within other populations faced with similar needs and challenges. The respite care program will be implemented at Olive Crest in Los Angeles County as part of the Adoption Promotion and Support Services Program (APSS). The goal of this program is to provide additional supportive services to parents caring for children with special needs and prevent adoption disruption or dissolution. Submission and funding of this grant was not a requirement for the completion of the project.
