by Allen, Jennifer, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 69; 1523345
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this proposal was to secure funding to implement a new program tailored to the unique needs of transition-age youth (TAY) with disabilities in Orange County. As a result of this new program, TAY with disabilities will receive the extra attention and support they need to increase their independent living skills and thus their likelihood of success as they transition out of the foster care system. An extensive literature review brought awareness of the vulnerability of TAY and the unmet needs of TAY with disabilities as one ofthe more high-risk subgroups of TAY. Consequently, this research led to the design ofthe proposed program to meet the many needs of TAY with disabilities. The Weingart Foundation was identified as an appropriate funding source after conducting an online search for potential funders interested in the targeted population and project. The actu~J1 submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
