The purpose of this project was to develop a program, identify a potential funding source, and write a grant to fund an educational program for the elderly Latino population who only speak Spanish and are at risk of suffering stressful lives due to their lack of acculturation. This proposed program seeks to assist in decreasing psychological distress for this group by increasing their levels of acculturation in the United States.
This program will target a community in the city of Los Angeles with a dense Latino population. The funding source selected for this project is The California Endowment because it has supported a variety of similar outreach programs to help underserved groups of people. The goal of the project is to improve acculturation levels to produce better psychological well-being in low income, Spanish speaking elderly Latinos aged 60 and over who are at risk of developing mental distress due to having low levels of acculturation.
