Abstract:

Abstract: The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to fund a program which would concentrate on teaching and equipping emancipating foster youth with basic life skills in order for them to successfully transition to young adulthood. The target population for this program are dependent youth of the County of Los Angeles, Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). While there are currently existing program models which promote independent living skills, there are restrictions on the eligibility requirements. This grant writer identified the Stuart Foundation as an appropriate funding source for the proposed program due to the foundation's commitment to education and improving the child welfare system. The grant was written to provide the vulnerable population of emancipating foster youth with knowledge and access to community resources in hopes they will become successful, law abiding and contributing members of society. In addition, the proposed program will provide transitioning foster youth with support and reinforce their self-confidence to reduce and/or counteract effects of childhood abuse and neglect. Securing the funding was not a thesis requirement.
