Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to identify funding sources and write a grant to provide a stipend for social work intern students who work with the Spanish-speaking older adult population. The program was also designed to help students advance their knowledge, attitudes, and skills when working with this population through specialized training and supervision.

Extensive research on identifying a potential funding source was conducted and resulted in the selection of the Archstone Foundation. With the collaboration of Casa Cardenas Senior and Family Counseling Center and Kaiser Permanente Educational Outreach Program, a grant was then written to allow MSW students an opportunity to develop clinical skills necessary for delivering adequate services to Spanish-speaking older adults living in the San Gabriel Valley, California. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
