The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to develop a program to help improve the quality of life of older adults living in public housing developments. The Weingart Foundation was identified as an appropriate funding source as they fund programs for economically disadvantaged, older adults living in Los Angeles County, California. The goal of the program is to help older adults remain independent and age in place. This program is important to older adults in public housing as many are struggling with chronic health conditions, isolation and depression. Many do not have family or friends to provide them the support and resources to assist them with their daily needs. Social services for older adults could enhance many aspects of their lives, including emotional and mental well-being, and give them a sense of belonging in their community. Actual funding of this project is not a requirement for this thesis.
