by Constantine, Stephanie, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 59; 1523156
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to identify potential funding sources and write a grant proposal to fund a program that supports both transitional and emancipated youth aged 13-25 in becoming successful, self-sufficient and independent adults. The program will focus on providing support through group and individual counseling, education and fostering connections through peer mentorships to improve the chances of positive outcomes for transitional and emancipated foster youth. By providing guidance and support, this program is aimed at reducing negative outcomes due to history of abuse and neglect, inadequate education and lack of emotional support, all of which often affect transitional aged and emancipated foster youth. The host agency for the proposed program is Hannah's Children's Homes. The funding source identified for the proposed program is California Community Foundation. The actual submission and funding of this grant proposal was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
