The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to fund the development of a mental health program for foster care and former foster care transitional age youth (TAY). The proposed mental health program was comprised of mobile individual therapy, psychoeducational support groups, and peer mentoring. These services aimed to address mental conditions that developed as a result of trauma, foster care, and/or the transition to independence. Additionally, these services aimed to provide TAY with resources to help reduce barriers to achieving full independence. The proposed program was written to operate under the Orange County branch of Aspiranet (an agency tasked with assisting foster care and former foster care TAY with housing). The California Wellness Foundation was selected as an appropriate funding source as it supported the development of mental health services for foster care TAY. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not required to successfully complete this project.
