Preventing Child Abuse Within Cross Cultural Groups In South Florida - "Filling The Gaps" (Seminar E)
Filling the Gaps is an innovative program aimed at preventing child abuse and neglect within cross-cultural groups, particularly recent immigrants. In working with families, the program takes into consideration a variety of issues, including whether they are recent immigrants and whether they came as refugees. The program also supports families in dealing with TANF changes around health insurance coverage, Medicaid eligibility, and requirements under the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA). This session will provide an overview of the Filling the Gaps program, its outreach and education services, its impact on the local community, and the program's needs assessment and evaluation findings.
