The purpose of the project was to write a grant to fund residential services for transitional age youth. The goal of the project was to provide support and stability to the youth in efforts to assist in their transition to adulthood and reduce some of the barriers they face. Transitional age youth face many challenges once they age out of the foster care system and attempt to live independently. These youth often come across issues with housing, education, employment, physical health, mental health, substance abuse, and criminal involvement. These services would be offered at Bayfront Youth and Family Services, an agency in Long Beach, California that has been providing services to youth who were in the system prior to turning 18 years old. The Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation was selected as it had a funding category for youth. Actual submission and/or funding ofthis grant was not required for successful completion ofthis thesis project.
