The purpose of this project was to write a grant to obtain funding to provide a psycho-educational seminar series for African American grandparents raising their grandchildren. Through an extensive literature review, the grant writer concluded that the history of the African American people, coupled with the economic, physical, and psychological stressors that are often present or exacerbated by caring for one's grandchild, puts African American grandparents at greater risk. The California Wellness Foundation was selected as the most appropriate funding source. The grant was written to provide a series of seminars to grandparent caregivers at the Kinship In Action Center, located in South Los Angeles. These seminars would provide caregivers with educational enrichment, resources, and support to decrease stressors associated with being a second time parent. Receiving funding for a seminar series would help ensure that grandparents raising their grandchildren will have greater access to social support and community resources.
