Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund a program that would provide housing services and vocational training for emancipated foster youth in the Los Angeles County area to prevent homelessness among this population. An extensive literature review increased knowledge about the plight of emancipated foster youth, including homelessness, and provided information about evidence-based transitional housing and vocational training programs that the grant writer then used to design a best-practices program. A search for potential funding sources via the Internet and a grant database resulted in the selection of the Pottruck Family Foundation as the best funding source for this project. A grant was then written to support a housing and vocational training program at the Foster and Kinship Care Education Program at Long Beach City College in California.
