Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Youth shelter for former foster youth and transitional age youth to prevent homelessness: A grant proposal
by Torres, Yesenia, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 68; 1517545
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this thesis project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to provide transitional shelter for youth who are homeless or on the verge of becoming homeless, between the ages of 18 to 25; priority is given to former foster youth.

An extensive literature review was conducted to discover the challenges they encounter, the risky behaviors youth engage in due to homelessness, and interventions that can effectively assist them.

The grant-funded program will provide a shelter where youth will have a place to sleep while obtaining mental health services, skill building workshops, and case management. If funded, the program will grant youth an opportunity to attain the tools needed to become self-sufficient members of society.

The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
