The purpose of this project was to design a transitional program for emancipated crossover youth, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant application for the nonprofit agency: New Roads for New Visions. An extensive literature review identified several risk factors and outcomes with respect to crossover youth. Risk factors for becoming a crossover youth include child maltreatment, placement instability, mental health issues, and substance use. Literature on related outcomes reported difficulties with education, reliance on public welfare, mental health problems, substance use behaviors, and high recidivism rates. This proposed program will offer extensive case management services to assist crossover youth in becoming independent adults. The selected potential funding source for this grant is the Public Welfare Foundation, Inc., which promotes the rights of underprivileged populations. The implications for social work practice are provided, and the submission and/or funding of the grant was not a requirement for completion of this project.
