by Johnston, Sienna S., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 55; 1523304
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to implement a transportation program for homeless individuals residing in transitional housing at InterFaith Shelter Network in Sonoma County, California. An extensive literature review about national and local homelessness was conducted to identify service needs. The Community Foundation Sonoma County's Basic Needs grant was chosen as a potential funder. The goal of the proposed program is to increase productivity and reduce stress among homeless as they move toward the goal of permanent housing. Through the provision of accessible shuttle services, the program's objectives are to decrease missed appointments, school absences, and truancy, and to increase employment and participation in meaningful activities among 120 homeless participants.
