Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Mental health services for parents experiencing homlessness: A grant proposal
by Willmna, Lindsay D., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 62; 1523187
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a grant proposal to fund a mental health program for homeless families that are enrolled in the First A venues program in San Francisco, California. The proposed mental health program will provide one on one individual therapeutic counseling to parents experiencing homelessness. A literature review was conducted to explore information related family homelessness including contributors to homelessness, service needs of the population, and government responses to family homelessness. The goal of the proposed program is to help homeless parents reduce mental health symptoms in order to obtain and maintain stable and permanent housing. This project also required identification of a potential funding source and completion of a grant application in order to fund the program at First A venues. Actual submission of the grant application was not required for successful completion of this project.
