Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Project Motherhood: A Grant Proposal Project
by Nelson, Tunisia, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 49; 10263299
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant proposal was to develop and seek funding for the implementation of “Project Motherhood”, a parenting program for transitional aged youth (TAY) mothers in Los Angeles County. The clients, former clients of Heritage Group home for Teens Inc., as well as referrals from local agencies located in Los Angeles County will have an opportunity to participate in the proposed parenting program.

Through a review of the literature on the needs and challenges as well as current services and interventions in place for TAY, the grant writer proposed and designed a parenting program. This grant writer explored numerous potential public and private funding sources. The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation was selected as the potential funding source because it best fit with the goals and objectives of this project.

The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not required for the successful completion of this academic project.
