Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to fund a drop-in center that would provide immediate services and case management to homeless veteran families in Long Beach, California. An extensive literature review was conducted to increase knowledge of risk factors that contribute to veteran homelessness, and to gain a better understanding of how to provide them with comprehensive services. A search for potential funding sources via the internet and a grant database resulted in the selection of the Green Foundation as the best funding source for this project. A grant was then written to support a drop-in center at the Multi-Service Center in Long Beach, California. The actual submission of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
