Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this thesis project was to write a grant proposal to fund the proposed program: Catalyst for Independence (CFI). The economic recession that began in 2008 has increased the need for affordable housing resources. The proposed program needs funding for eviction prevention and move-in costs to support individuals and families who are homeless or experiencing housing insecurity. The CFI program utilizes both primary and secondary evidenced-based approaches to ending homelessness. In addition, special attention has been paid to addressing the mental health issues that are often a result of experiencing the trauma of homelessness. It is expected that implementation of the proposed program will increase access to housing and promote self-sufficiency. The program is designed to empower individuals to make the transition from housing insecurity and homelessness to stable housing and self-sufficiency. Actual submission and/or funding ofthe grant were not required by the School of Social Work for the successful completion of this project.
