Parent involvement programs have been shown to positively affect children, families, and schools. Unfortunately, low-income Latinos often experience barriers that may limit and prevent their involvement particularly on school campuses. Therefore, parent involvement programs targeting this population need to incorporate best practice, culturally-sensitive outreach and program strategies to successfully engage and involve them. The purpose of this project was to design a parent involvement program, to identify potential funding sources and to complete a grant application to fund the program at a predominantly Latino urban elementary school in Southern California. Program components include family outreach, parent education workshops, professional development and family-friendly school-based social events. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of the project. Implications for social work practice are discussed.
