by Gutierrez, Griselda, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 58; 1493127
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify a potential funding source, and complete a grant application to fund the program. The proposed program is an aftercare Team Decisionmaking (TDM) program for families receiving voluntary services from the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) Compton office. The program is expected to enhance family outcomes and reduce the number of failed voluntary cases. The Weingart Foundation was chosen as the funding source because the foundation funds programs that benefit the underserved and general community. An extensive literature review on risk factors for child abuse, service needs of families involved in the child welfare system, and TDM outcomes was conducted. If funded, this program would provide families with additional support to successfully exit DCFS. Actual submission and funding of this grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
