Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A Community Educational Workshop for Individuals Impacted by Domestic Violence in Romania: A Grant Proposal
by Jepsen, Brooke, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2019, 89; 13812493
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to fund a community educational workshop program focused on bringing awareness, knowledge, and skills to those impacted by intimate partner violence (IPV). This program will be offered to community members in a local community in Romania. The hosting agency of this project, Asian Women’s Shelter (AWS), provides anti-oppression services to domestic violence victims in San Francisco, California.

After conducting a review of the literature, the grant writer designed a program providing community engagement and mobilizing, psycho-education on domestic violence, building positive coping skills, and a variety of workshop topics related to IPV. After researching funding sources, the Oak Foundation was determined as the most appropriate match for funding the project based on their focus on women’s rights and issues, one specifically being domestic violence. Actual submission of the grant proposal and funding was not required in order to successfully complete this thesis grant proposal.
