by Chavez, Mayra A., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 61; 1527683
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal seeking funds for the development of an after-school program for youth living in an emergency shelter. The literature review provided information that assisted in the development of programs that focused on improving maladaptive behaviors, improving coping mechanism and relationships with adults. The design of the after school project aims at improve coping mechanisms for youth that can help minimize drug use, detachment from school, aggressive and risky behavior. There was a widespread search for potential funders that resulted in choosing the Weingart foundation. The Weingart foundation funds programs that have an emphasis on education, and improving services for underserved youth in the community. A grant proposal was written to assist children living at LA Family Housing Emergency Shelter, a nonprofit program focused on providing supportive housing to homeless families. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
