The purpose of this project was to develop a program to provide culturally sensitive services to Latino immigrant families with children in the child welfare system in the city of Los Angeles, find sources of funding, and complete a grant application. An extensive literature review of this population, confirmed the challenges that Latino Immigrant families face which include poverty, lack of employment, inadequate healthcare, limited English skills and low educational levels, and issues regarding documentation status.
The program seeks to reduce the number of children who are maltreated and neglected. At the same time, the proposed program seeks to reduce the number of Latino families that re-enter the child welfare system in the city of Los Angeles. Through an interne grant database search the the Weingart Foundation was determined to be the most suitable match for the proposed program. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
