Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a proposal to fund a mental health education program and partnership between mental health professionals and clergy. The grant writer determined the host agency, Moneta Gardens Improvement (MGI), would benefit from this program due to its demographics and mental health education needs. MGI is located in the city of Hawthorne in the county of Los Angeles, California.

Upon completion of a review of literature, the grant writer developed a time line of educational and partnership goals and objectives which will be followed by the Bridges to Wellness program. After researching funding sources, the Carrie Estelle Doheny Foundation was determined to be the most suitable match for the funding of the project. The mission and goals of The Doheny Foundation and MGI were also the most compatible. Actual submission and funding of the grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
