The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal asking for funds on behalf of the Para Los Niños Agency for the creation of a mental health program to assist undocumented children not eligible for government funded services. The proposed program, Segunda Oportunidad, will primarily focus on Latino children who have an existing case with The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and are in the care of their parents. The overall goal of the program is to enhance the child's quality of life and well-being through individual and conjoint family therapy. A search for funding sources resulted in the selection of The California Wellness Foundation as the best funding source for this program. The actual submission and funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
