Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a support services program, identify potential funding sources, and complete a grant application for Filipino families served by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) in the South County regional office in Lakewood, California. This grant will be utilized to complement the Asian Pacific and American Indian Unit of DCFS and will provide mental health counseling, afterschool homework help, immigrant support groups, case management, and cultural classes to Filipino children and youth. Extensive research was conducted on the transnational struggles of Filipino immigrant families, including familial and cultural values that stand as risks for child abuse and neglect. The Beaumont Foundation of America was selected as the funding source. Although the grant was not submitted as part of the completion of this project, it may be submitted in the future for possible funding.
