Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

After-school program for foster care children: A grant proposal
by San Elias, Rosangel, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 58; 1493054
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design an after school program for elementary school level children who are in foster care, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund an after-school and extracurricular activities for elementary school children in foster care. The program was developed to improve youth's academic achievement and peer-relationships by providing a comprehensive after-school program for foster children. A search for potential funding sources via the Internet and grant database, FC Search, resulted in the selection of the Variety the Children's Charity as the funding source for this project. A grant was then written to support an after-school and extracurricular activity program for Families Uniting Families Foster Family Agency in Long Beach, California. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
