Abstract (Summary)

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) homeless adults continue to be understudied and underserved despite the known healthcare and mental health disparities among the LGBT and risk factors associated with homelessness. Insufficient research and programs for the LGBT homeless adult population further perpetuates systematic discrimination due to the lack of culturally competent social service programs addressing their complex needs. The purpose of this project was to identify the health and mental health needs of LGBT homeless adults and to write a grant to fund an integrated mobile health team to increase access to health and mental services in the Skid Row and Hollywood areas of Los Angeles. The host agency for the grant proposal is the John Wesley Community Health Institute Incorporation in Skid Row downtown Los Angeles, California. The actual submission of this grant to California Community Foundation was not required to successfully complete this thesis projec
