Hospice Outreach Program for the Latino Community: A Grant Proposal Project
by Jimenez Bernal, Maria C., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2018, 44; 10784469
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the project was to fund a hospice outreach program for the Latino community. This program will use a culturally sensitive approach to provide education on hospice services. St. Athanasius Church, the hosting agency of this project, is located in Long Beach, California. This Church was selected as the hosting agency since it has a history of conducting effective outreach to Latinos.

Latinos continue to underutilize hospice services even though it is a covered benefit of Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurances. After conducting a review of the literature, the grant writer designed a program providing education about hospice services to the Latino community. After researching funding sources, the Weingart Foundation was determined to be the best match for the funding of this program.

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