The purpose of this project was to partner with a host agency, locate a potential funding source, and write a grant to fund Better Parents in Control or Mejores Padres en Control. This will target Latino families who are at-risk of child maltreatment and to obtain information on preventions from having a future case within Department of Children and Family Services. The services will be delivered at Olive Crest in Los Angeles. The literature review was developed to support Latino families and their parenting styles, prevention services, and how to break the cycle amongst child maltreatment. The purpose of Better Parents in Control or in Spanish Mejores Padres en Control is to educate Latino families on cultural awareness, child abuse laws, and parenting techniques and be able to reduce child welfare service encounters. The actual funding or submission of this grant was not necessary for the successful of this project.
