The purpose of this project was to partner with a host agency, locate a potential funding source, and write a grant to obtain funding for a program for the chronically homeless individuals. The program assists chronically homeless individuals with a mental illness, suffering from substance abuse or veterans. A literature review was conducted in order to examine the success of a Housing First model, history of homelessness in America, and challenges faced by the homeless. The program will be located in Homeless Intervention Shelter and House (H.I.S. House) located in Placentia, California. The program consists of housing first, employment skills training, mentoring and financial literacy. Also, supportive services through case management assist in developing attainable short term and long term goals to promote self-sufficiency and improving the individual's quality of life physically, mentally and emotionally. Submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
