The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to develop an independent living skills program for foster youth that reside through Nirio's Latinos Unidos, Foster Family Agency. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the most effective approaches for creating stable transitions for foster youth as they emancipate out of foster care. The goals of the program were to develop psycho educational workshops that use hands on experiences in five core areas: budgeting, housing, employment, education, and community resources. A mentor would voluntarily guide the youth through the proposed program. Through the Weingart Foundation, a support expansion grant from the Los Angeles Youth Network, was found to be the most suitable grant for the program. If funded, this program would develop independent living skills among foster youth so as to increase the likelihood of their successful transitions into adulthood.
