Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a program establishing linkage services to immigrant families with children in the child welfare system in Los Angeles County, find sources of funding, and complete a grant application. An extensive literature review confirmed the scarcity of statistics pertaining to the demographics of this population, as well as the challenges faced including language access issues, poverty, lack of employment opportunities, lack of health care, obstacles in education, and the urgent need for culturally sensitive and linguistically accessible services.

The program seeks to increase reunification rates and improve child safety and well being by supporting efforts to comply with judicial mandates. Through internet research and exploration of a grant database, the Weingart Foundation was determined to be the most suitable match. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
