Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A resource center for emancipating foster youth: A grant proposal project
by Fierros, Evelyn, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 60; 1493018
Abstract (Summary)

Education is the key to individual opportunity; it is essential in our everyday lives to bring about a change. By obtaining an education it is also creating a change within our society and improving the quality of life in our communities. Education is the knowledge of putting one's potentials to maximum use.

The purpose of this grant proposal was to identify potential funding sources to fund a resource center (career tools, books, videos) to be used by foster care social workers who provide counseling, support, and guidance to foster children. This project includes a training component for foster care social workers to learn the most effective emancipation preparation strategies.

This grant proposal project aimed to create a resource center to assist social workers in providing the best support and guidance to foster children living in Southern California.

The actual submission of this grant was not a requirement of this project.
