The purpose of this project was to design a juvenile delinquency prevention program for youth in out-of-home care (ages 10-16), to identify potential funding sources, and to complete a grant application to fund the program for youth served by an agency in Orange County, California. The program is intended to promote family functioning among youth and their foster and birth families in order to stabilize placement and reduce juvenile delinquency involvement. The proposed program was designed to include empirically-supported components of the successful programs such as the Ecological Family-Based Services Model and Common Sense Parent Training. The program will provide services to youth, their foster family and birth parents. The actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not required for the successful completion of this project. Implications for social work practice are discussed.
