Housing for the homeless mentally ill population: A grant writing project
by Waterman, Memory A., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 51; 1583227
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to obtain funding for a transitional housing program for homeless mentally ill individuals in Orange County, California. The host agency for the grant proposal was the Mental Health Association of Orange County. If funded, the transitional housing apartments will house 15 homeless individuals. The staff will include a program director and two part-time case managers. Residents will be encouraged to participate in various groups during the week to learn independent living skills and manage their mental health symptoms. The actual submission of this grant to the Weingart Foundation was not required for successful completion of this project.
