The purpose of this proposal was to address the mental health needs of the homeless population by securing funding for an expressive arts therapy program at the Project Achieve homeless shelter of Catholic Charities, San Pedro region located in Los Angeles County, California. To determine the suitability of an expressive arts therapy program at Project Achieve, a needs assessment for the target population and a review of literature were conducted. Needs assessment and literature review findings indicated that expressive arts therapy has a strong potential for benefitting Project Achieve residents. The results of Internet and grant database searches that were performed to locate potential funding sources identified the Weingart Foundation as the most appropriate fonder for this project. A grant was written outlining the process of establishing an expressive arts therapy program at the Project Achieve shelter.
