by De los Santos, Elidia, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 83; 1527912
Abstract (Summary)

This grant proposal was developed to address the unique psychological needs of the undocumented Latino youth student population in California. This project involved the grant writer to partner with a nonprofit organization, and find a feasible funding source to implement a pilot project entitled the Wellness Project. A literature review was conducted in order to evaluate the mental health needs, reasons for the lack of mental health services and strategies to effectively address the issues of the target population. The Wellness Project will be held at the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles in Los Angeles, California to establish a psychological wellness program for undocumented young students interested in pursuing higher education in California. The goal of the program is to increase the psychological well-being of California's undocumented youth student population. The actual submission and or funding of the grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
