The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund a comprehensive sex education and counseling service program for foster youth. An extensive literature review provided the grant-writer with knowledge about the prevalence of the sexual practices of foster youth and provided information regarding evidence-based prevention and intervention programs. The grant-writer then used this information to design a best-practices program. A search for potential funding sources via the Internet and grant databases resulted in the selection of the Hearst Foundations. A grant was then written to support a program that provides comprehensive sex education and counseling services to foster youth at Families For Children, foster care agency, in Inglewood, California.
