Given the prevalence of homeless adults who experience a variety of co-occurring mental and substance use disorders, the purpose of this project was to identify a funding source and write a grant proposal to design and implement an integrated program that will address the needs of homeless adults with co-occurring disorders. The target area is Los Angeles County, more specifically, San Pedro, California. There are many risks associated with adults who experience co-occurring disorders, including chronically homelessness, poor health, high suicide rates, HIV I AIDS, and frequent interactions with the criminal justice system. The overarching goal of this proposed program is to decrease the prevalence of co-occurring disorders by offering effective treatment. The potential funding source for this project is the McMillen Family Foundation because the criteria of the grant guidelines were consistent with the nature of this program and identified population. The actual grant submission and/or funding of the grant was not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
