The purpose of this project was to locate a prospective funding source and write a grant to provide services to homeless and runaway youth. An extensive literature review was completed to explore the social problem, identify the needs of homeless youth, and create a program which would provide specialized services to homeless and runaway youth in Orange County. An internet search was conducted to identify the best possible funder; the funder selected is the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California, which fits the grant writer's mission of providing supportive services to at risk youth in Orange County. The grant-funded program, a drop-in resource center, will be conducted for the organization Community Service Programs, and will provide immediate needs, case management and individualized educational support, individual/group counseling, and linkages to community resources. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
