The purpose of this project was to identify a potential funding source and write a grant to fund a community program that centers on strengthening family dynamics. The city of Compton in Los Angeles County is stricken with poverty, systemic and economic challenges that often impact the daily living of families and the ability of the communities to thrive. It has been evidenced that child maltreatment contributes to disruptions in family dynamics and community relationships. To counteract these rates of maltreatment, an innovative community program was proposed, which focused on fostering positive family relationships and increasing social supports through effective community engagement to reduce transgenerational child maltreatment. The goal of this project is to increase interactions and social supports for children and families by providing a variety of activities and resources within their community. The actual submission of the grant application was not a requirement of the thesis project.
