Women who are homeless and have experienced trauma struggle with many adversities, including lack of shelter, unemployment, physical and mental health issues, interaction with the legal system, and re-victimization. The many barriers to service that confront them, compounded with the added dimension of trauma-related issues, make homeless women a population that is woefully under served. The National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH) estimated that 38% of all homeless individuals living in shelters are women. Further, violence against women is cited as a major reason that women become homeless. As such, there is a great need for programming for homeless women. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal, and create and secure funding for a program for women who are homeless survivors of trauma. The Carrie Estelle Doheny Foundation has been selected as the funding source and Tom Redgate Memorial Recovery Center was selected as the host agency. The proposed program is composed of outreach, open-ended psycho-educational groups and case management. Securing funds for this grant proposal was not a requirement for completion of this thesis.
