Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Connect A Vet: Extended services program for reentry of veterans into society—A grant proposal project
by McCaster, Jacqueline, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 79; 1517730
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a 2-year pilot program, identify funding sources, and write a grant proposal to fund an extended services agency, Connect A Vet, in Long Beach, California. A review of the literature revealed that the City of Long Beach does not have its own veteran-specific one-stop agency outside the Veterans Affairs health care system. The literature review established the need for this grant proposal writer to develop a local agency to address this issue. A search for funding was conducted through the Internet; the Long Beach Nonprofit Partnership Library; California State University, Long Beach library and databases; and private, state, and federal foundations. The Weingart Foundation was selected as the most appropriate funding source to support this project. The successful funding of this grant was not a requirement for completion of the master's degree.
