Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

by Cervantes, Gladys, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 56; 10096072
Abstract (Summary)

Employment and legal barriers have been identified as being two key factors that are keeping fathers from being fully engaged and involved with their children. The purpose of this project is to write a grant that funds employment and legal assistance components to the already established Project Fatherhood program at Families Uniting Families in Long Beach, California. Funding will be requested from two foundations.

The overarching goal of this project is to expand the services of Project Fatherhood to help the members reach their potential as fathers and members of their communities. The program’s primary goals are to increase the employability of the fathers and remove legal barriers to employment and reunification. The effectiveness of the program will be determined by total number of fathers who acquire and maintain employment, and the legal barriers that are decreased and/or removed. Submission of this proposal for funding was not required to successfully complete this project.
