Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to enhance an existing afterschool program for children 8-11 of incarcerated parents, by providing more comprehensive services to the children and their families, to seek a potential funding source, and write a grant to fund the proposed program for Friends Outside in Los Angeles County. The program is intended to foster positive relationships between youth and prosocial others, promote skill development, and increase access to support services and resources in order to reduce the potential challenges faced by the children and families of incarcerated parents. The evidence-based program will provide services to both youth and their caregivers. 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.
