The following grant project was established to develop and implement a music therapy program at Children Are Our Future, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that services foster and probation youth through residential treatment in Los Angeles County. To establish this program research into psychosocial issues affecting adolescents in outof- home care, as well as current interventions to mediate the issues, was conducted. Music therapy, as an alternative form of therapy, was supported through evidence-based research and all relevant information pertaining to alternative forms of therapy was researched and included in order to reinforce the position for the program. The Weingart Foundation was chosen as a funding source after conducting a thorough search for a compatible grant funder and a grant proposal was written. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
