The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant proposal to fund a transitional placement center for detained children at the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) located in Service Planning Area (SPA) 6, Compton West office. The overall purpose of this transitional placement center was to provide children, who come into the foster care system, with a suitable, safe, comfortable environment while they wait for their social workers to find them a placement. A search for a potential funding source identified the Stuart Foundation. This foundation was selected because of its interest in and commitment to helping vulnerable youth in the child welfare system. Actual submission or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
