Establishing self-sufficiency—reentry and incarcerated women: A grant proposal project
by Diggs, Michelle Marie, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 66; 1527546
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund a program that will provide extended transitional housing for women offenders and address the impact that long term incarceration has had on their lives.

An extensive literature review provided increased knowledge about the historical, racial and gender context of women offenders and the reentry challenges they face. The grant writer designed a reentry program for women based on current literature about women in jails, prisons; on parole and probation; and the gender specific interventions for substance use and mental health disorders.

The California Wellness Foundation was the most suitable funding source for this project. This program will be located at Harbour Area Half way Houses, Inc. in Long Beach, California.

Actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
