Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the thesis project was to develop a comprehensive mental health and wellness program for homeless families throughout Orange County, to identify a potential funding source, and to complete a grant application to fund the program at the Illumination Foundation, which has sites throughout Orange County in Costa Mesa, Anaheim, Santa Ana, and Stanton. An extensive literature review was conducted to determine the needs and challenges faced by homeless individuals with co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. The Weingart Foundation was identified and selected as a potential funding source for the proposed project. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
