Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Increasing employability among male ex-offenders: A grant proposal project
by Subia, Johanna S., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 52; 1586170
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and create a grant that would fund a re-entry employment program for male ex-offenders. The proposed program would include services such as individualized case management services, supported employment services, and vocational training that would enhance the likelihood of successful reintegration upon re-entry. The program was created to target the needs of male ex-offenders, as men have higher incarceration rates than women. The most appropriate funding source for this program was identified as the California Wellness Foundation as they have previously funded programs that promote education and employment, and believe in the importance of self sufficiency on the overall well-being of the individual. This program aims to increase the employability of ex-offenders, while at the same time reducing recidivism rates among this group.
