Abstract (Summary)

The purpose ofthis grant proposal is to fund the development of a curriculum to support the needs and strengths of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/ questioning (LGBTQ) foster youth, identify a host agency and select a potential funding source. The proposal ultimately targets a host organization that can foster the development of the curriculum and effectively reach the secondary population which includes the foster care agencies. These agencies will ultimately train the foster care workers, foster care parents and other applicable stakeholders. A literature review details the history of LGBTQ youth in foster care, their risks and current interventions to support this population. A number of potential funding sources are identified, with the David Bohnette Foundation selected to approach. The proposal includes a needs assessment, implementation method, staffing, evaluation and budget narrative.
