Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant was to design a psychoeducational workshop for South Asian immigrant families. The literature review goes over cultural factors that play a part in making the transition difficult to immigrating to a Western country. A search for potential funders was done by going on California State University Long Beach library website. This allowed the grantwriter to create a list of potential funders. The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation's focus on children, families, culture, and the underserved populations made it the best choice. The grantwriter chose to collaborate with the South Asian Network in Artesia, California. It is a nonprofit organization that has the ability to serve people in nine different languages. Actual submission of this grant was not required for the completion of this project.
