Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund a program to provide a psycho-educational therapy group to increase coping mechanisms for women who have experienced childhood sexual abuse (CSA). This form of therapy would utilize evidence based treatment for women who suffer physically and emotionally from the impact of CSA. The target population for this project was adult women, ages 18 and over who are clients of Project Understanding. This is a faith-based community agency that provides housing and food assistance for economically disadvantaged families, supportive services for homeless individuals and families and tutoring services for children in grades K-8. A search for funders was conducted at Ventura County Community Foundation Center for Nonprofit Leadership. Ultimately, a funder was pursued through an unsolicited invitation through The Women's Legacy Fund. It was not required to actually submit this grant application, or secure funding, for successful completion of this project. The Women's Legacy Fund is a network of donors that provide funding to organizations who are interested in advancing causes for women and girls in Ventura County. The focus of this funder is to assist women and girls in efforts towards self-sufficiency, independence and to live meaningful lives. Since it began in 1995, The Women's Legacy Fund has raised over $1.5 million with $838,564 in direct grant funding to various nonprofit agencies in Ventura County.
