The purpose of this project was to partner with a non-profit host agency, locate a grant-funding source and write a grant to develop transitional housing for transitional age youth exiting the child welfare system. A review of literature was conducted to examine the history of child welfare, child welfare legislation and the challenges that foster youth face during their transition to adulthood. The primary goal of the project is to provide housing, case management and services to assist foster youth in their transition into adulthood, while decreasing homelessness among this population. The Carrie Estelle Doheny Foundation was selected as the funding source because they fund projects that assist in the aid of foster youth. The submission or funding of this grant was not required for completion of this project.
