by Landon, Sara Grace, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 55; 1587907
Abstract (Summary)

Homeless women have unique gendered needs that require additional resources such as supportive services programming in the Los Angeles area. Research reflects the high rates of physical and sexual trauma experienced by homeless women often leading to severe mental illness or substance abuse dependency. The purpose of this grant writing project was to seek funding for a transitional shelter program as an extended residential component to the Downtown Women's Center's (DWC) programming to be requested from the Ahmanson Foundation. The DWC offers daytime drop in services and permanent housing for homeless women in Los Angeles. The mission of the proposed transitional shelter program is to serve, educate, and prepare homeless women as they transition from homelessness to housing. The actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
