Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify potential funding sources and write a grant to fund an educational support program for family caregivers of adults with developmental disabilities. The proposed program incorporates an education and support group with peer mentorship as well as case management. The program is designed to help caregivers by enhancing skills needed to respond to the common challenges they are likely to face, providing a supportive environment and educating them on and liking them to available resources. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not required for the successful completion of this project. Implications for social work practice are discussed.
