by Aparicio, Joseph, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 56; 10011274
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to create a training program for foster parents who care for and supervise foster children at-risk of becoming Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC). The program’s objectives were to bring awareness to foster parents about the risks and challenges surrounding CSEC, prepare foster parents in identifying foster children at-risk of becoming CSEC, and provide foster parents with the resources and support to address the needs of foster children at-risk of becoming CSEC.

The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation was selected due to its focus on social impact. The proposed program matched the foundation’s focus on providing services to an underserved and disadvantaged population by preparing foster parents in identifying and addressing the needs of foster children at-risk of becoming CSEC. Actual submission of this grant was not a requirement for this project.
