The purpose of this project is to develop a grant to fund a program to support transition age foster youth. Designed to be implemented within the nonprofit, Families Uniting Families, the program serves to help foster youth prepare for adult life through hands on training. This one year program consists of six workshops in the areas of mental health, health and wellness, social etiquette, money management, finding housing, and cooking, which will be facilitated by contracted professionals and experts. Use of funds will also include monetary incentives to be earned for participation to provide additional concrete support. The Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation was selected as the funding source due to their focus on programs for youth. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not required for successful completion of this thesis project.
