This final report discusses the activities and outcomes of a federally funded project designed to provide financial assistance to the Institute for Black Parenting to recruit families for children with special needs in Louisiana. During the 4-year project, 486 families were recruited. Of the 486, 385 attended orientation meetings at the office or received rapid response in home orientation. When the project ended in September 2005, there were 24 families under study pending completion of requirements and 14 families approached and waiting for placement of a child and/or children. Placements for the four years of the project totaled 18. Sixty-one home studies were completed and several were pending. The report describes the program and the program model, characteristics of the targeted community, staff training activities, recruitment activities, process evaluation, problems encountered and lessons learned, and future plans.
