by Jules, Michael K., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 82; 1523303
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to develop a 2-year program addressing the current needs of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF)/Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) veterans' assimilation back into civilian life. The program will be designed to aid veterans in high risk, hard-to-reach areas, improve the quality of their lives through outreach, education, training and understanding their benefits as veterans. As part of the initiative, veterans will receive training enabling them to provide outreach, as well as serve as counselors and mentors of their fellow veterans. This will facilitate and promote the OIF/OEF veterans to obtain the necessary benefits and treatment available to them. Lastly, this project will be used to target the areas with the highest percentage of underserved and underrepresented veterans in lower socioeconomic areas. The Weingart Foundation was selected as the most appropriate funding source to support The Health Liaison Program for Veterans. Submission of the proposal was not a requirement for completion of this project.
