The purpose of this project was to write a grant to obtain funding for the development of a program to prevent female foster youth from becoming involved in commercial sexual exploitation (CSE). There has been a growing awareness among child welfare workers that female foster youth are at-risk for CSE involvement. With few prevention programs currently in place, the grant writer identified this as an unmet need for youth involved in the foster care system.
A search for potential funding sources was conducted using online grant databases. The Weingart Foundation was selected as the best potential funding source for this project. A grant was then written to support the development of a CSE awareness prevention program for foster youth living in Los Angeles.
The actual submission for funding of this grant was not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
