The purpose of this project was to develop a program, select a potential funding source, and write a grant that would help emancipated youth overcome many of the challenges they face upon exiting the foster care system and assist them in becoming self-sufficient adults.
Emancipated foster youth continue to be a population at risk due to a lack of education, unemployment, homelessness, and incarceration. As such, more effective interventions are needed to help foster youth successfully emancipate from foster care. This grant writer addressed this issue through writing a proposal to fund a comprehensive program, called Project Empower, which incorporates occupational therapy with psycho-educational groups and individualized case management services.
The actual submission for funding of the grant was not required for successful completion of this project.
