Emancipated foster youth face a host of challenges such as homelessness and poverty as they attempt to enter adulthood without viable financial resources and support. The purpose of the project was to design a comprehensive supportive housing program for pregnant or parenting youth formerly in foster care, and write a grant to fund the proposed program. The objective of the project was to provide former foster youth with access to affordable housing and childcare, so that they may successfully prepare for independent living. The Orangewood Children's Foundation was identified as the hosting agency and the funding source selected was a THP-Plus grant offered by the California Department of Social Services. If funded, the project would provide former foster youth with the support and resources necessary to overcome the multitude of risk factors associated with being in foster care.
