Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Independent living skills program for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender homeless youth: A grant proposal
by Knerr, Kristen, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 68; 1527564
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to partner with a host agency, LA Gay & Lesbian Center, locate a potential funding source, California Community Foundation, and write a grant proposal to obtain funding for an independent living skills group that can address the special needs of the LGBT homeless youth population. A literature review was conducted to examine best practice in working with the population and to examine current policies and programs that work to address the needs of this population. The independent living skills group will better prepare the target population for living on their own. It will increase their level of support and encourage higher and longer rates of employment, better wages, higher educational attainment, less returns to the streets and better psychosocial outcomes. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
