The purpose of the project was to design a program, identify potential funding source, and complete a grant to fund an educational and supportive program for foster parents who care for autistic foster youth. The services would be offered at SHIELDS a non-profit agency serving the Compton and Watts communities of South Los Angeles. The awareness supportive program will be design to provide educational workshops for foster parents and caregivers who provide care for County of Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services autistic children. The Weingart Foundation was chosen as the best applicant for submitting this grant proposal based on the population they serve and their interests to provide services to disadvantage communities. Research supports the high need for autistic awareness support services for foster parents and caregivers who care for the youth. The submission of a tangible grant application was not required for the completion of this project.
