Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal and identify a potential funding source for the creation and implementation of a mental health intervention program for homebound older adults who experience depression and/or generalized anxiety disorders in Irvine, California (CA). An extensive literature review was performed, which helped understand the special needs of this population. A search for potential funding sources was conducted using the Internet and a grant database located in Orange County, CA. The California Wellness Foundation was chosen as the most appropriate funder because it meets all of the required criteria of the host agency, the City oflrvine, Lakeview Senior Center (LSC). The proposed program's goal is to provide mental health services to Irvine's homeboundolder adults to help them manage their challenges with mental health illness so as to live independent and productive lives. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
