by Sasser, Raechael M., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 67; 1493182
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop and fund a physical activity program for homeless parents to decrease their stress. An extensive literature review was done regarding evidenced-based physical activity related intervention programs. There was very limited literature about homeless parents in regards to physical activity interventions. A search for possible funding sources obtained via the Internet and grant database, resulted in the selection of the S. Mark Taper Foundation as the best funding source for this project. A grant was written to support a physical activity program at Illumination Foundation, a transitional housing program in Orange County, California. The actual submission of this grant proposal was not required.
