When children are placed in temporary foster care, often it is with other family members while their biological parents comply with court orders. However, Latino foster children can sometimes be placed under the care of non-kin families who are culturally different from the children. This can be detrimental to the children's growth and cultural identity development. Currently, the child welfare system is experiencing a shortage of qualified Latino foster parents who can provide foster care. This grant proposal is an innovative and culturally specific campaign to help increase the availability of qualified Latino foster parents. With funding provided by the American Legion Child Welfare Foundation, the goal of this project is to educate Latino families about foster parenting and to increase the number of new non-kin foster parents for Concept7, a nonprofit foster family agency in Orange County, California. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
