Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project is to design an HIV prevention program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to reduce the incidence of HIV infection among 16 to 18 year olds who participate in the Independent Living Program at the Department of Children and Family Services in Long Beach, California. An extensive literature review about the human immunodeficiency virus, how foster youth may be affected by the disease, and prevention programs that have proven effective was conducted. Potential funding sources were accessed through an Internet database search at the Long Beach Non-Profit Partnership and The California Wellness Foundation was selected. A grant was written to support an HIV prevention program for foster youth from the Department of Children and Family Services. The program will consist of nine 4-week sessions and will serve approximately 135 youth over a 1 year period.
