The purpose of the project was to write a grant for a Drop-in Center, a community-based wellness and case management support system for transition age youth (TAY). Youth between the ages of 18-25 will have access to an array of resources and referrals to assist them in overcoming disparities and make informed choices to obtain personal sustainability. The goal is to create an environment where youth can access a resource center designed for TAY who are too old or aged out of child services, or not mature or emotionally developed to have stability.
Through review of literature of the disparities and challenges as well as existing services and interventions in place for TAY, the grant writer proposed and designed a Drop-in Center for youth to access supportive services in obtaining employment, educational, counseling, substance abuse, retention, and life skills support. The grant writer identified potential funding sources from public and private institutions, which initiated a funding match with California Community Foundation (CCF). The submission and or funding of this proposal was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
