The purpose of this project was to partner with a host agency, Families Uniting Families, identify a potential funding source, Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation, and write a grant proposal to obtain funding for an emancipation roadmap program for transitional age youth (TAY) in foster care. The proposed program focuses on helping youth transition to independence through education, guidance, support, and system linkage. A literature review was conducted to examine the needs of this vulnerable population and legislative policies developed to address the unwanted psychosocial outcomes for transitional age youth. The proposed program will leverage and maximize resources and support available through existing legislative policies in efforts to diminish the effects of aging out of care and reduce barriers to achieving independence. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not required to successfully complete this project.
