There are an estimated 117,647 day laborers in the United States and approximately 91% of this predominantly male population is immigrant Latino. Research indicates that Latino day laborers in the United States encounter multiple forms of discrimination and experience depression related to issues of acculturation, separation from their families, and lack of protection from the law. The purpose of this proposal project was to design a support group for Latino male day laborers in the city of Los Angeles. The goal of the program is to lower depressive symptoms and provide knowledge of, and access to, community resources. The grant writer identified the Ralph M. Parson Foundation as a potential funding source for the program. The actual submission and funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project
