The purpose of this project was to develop a program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund an integrated education and supportive services program for Cambodian adults utilizing services from the United Cambodian Community (UCC) in Long Beach, California. The comprehensive literature review demonstrated the primary risk factors were low education attainment, language barriers, and trauma-related stressors. Because of these risk factors, Cambodians individuals have economic struggles, are unable to find skilled employment, and lack resources. The goal of this program is to obtain economic security and reduce poverty rates by offering culturally specific supportive services, education classes, mental health services, and job development opportunities for Cambodian adults. The grant writer selected the Weingart Foundation as the potential funding source for this 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.
