The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund a housing resource specialist within the Sonoma County Child Welfare System. This individual will provide individual sessions and group workshops regarding the organizational and other skills needed to complete applications for subsidized housing. The target population will be families receiving Family Reunification services for which lack of housing is a major factor in their inability to be reunified with their children. In addition, emancipating foster youth will be served. The Family Unification Program (FUP) through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development was determined to be the most appropriate source of funding.
The overall goals of the proposed project are to increase protective factors by providing clients with resources and strategies to meet their immediate need for housing and empower them to be self-sufficient. This, in turn, is expected to decrease child maltreatment and maximize the likelihood that foster youth will transition to adulthood successfully. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
