Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project is to develop an aftercare program entitled CareLinks, identify funding sources, and write a grant to fund this program which will provide services for female survivors of domestic abuse. Survivors of domestic abuse often lack the support, knowledge, and resources needed to overcome their life challenges, especially following their exit from a shelter environment. The goal of CareLinks is to empower survivors by providing case management, individual counseling, and support groups that will promote independence and link victims to resources in the community. The Transitional Housing Assistance Grants for Victims of Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Stalking, or Sexual Assault Programs which is offered by the Office on Violence Against Women was identified as a potential funder for CareLinks; which will be hosted by the YWCA of San Diego County. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
