The purpose of this project was to design a comprehensive program for emancipated foster youth, identify potential funding sources and write a grant application for United Friends of the Children (UFC) located in Los Angeles, CA. An analysis of the literature revealed emancipated foster youth display high rates of low educational attainment, poor employment outcomes, homelessness, and mental health disorders when compared to the general population. The program goals are to improve emancipated foster youth's educational, employment, income, housing, and mental health outcomes. The Stuart Foundation was selected as the possible funding agency for the proposed program. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not a requirement for completion of this project. Implications for social work practice are discussed.
