The purpose of this project was to design a program that would deliver mental health resources to transition-age youth and their providers, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund the project. This proposed program aims to connect transition-age youth in transitional housing programs in Los Angeles County, as well as the social work staff serving them, with mental health resources to improve outcomes and usher healthier transitions into adulthood. This project includes an extensive literature review highlighting an array of negative outcomes and mental health challenges among foster youth and former foster youth. The potential funding source selected was the California Endowment. The proposed program is detailed with the program objectives and outcomes, an evaluation plan, staffing information and a budget narrative. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
