Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A support program for women recently released from incarceration: A grant proposal
by Watson, Vikki, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 62; 1605439
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to partner with a local host agency, locate a potential funding source and write a grant to obtain funding for a community-based alternative to support women who have been recently released from prison. Project RED will address the needs of women and their children by creating a drop-in center with counseling and referral supports. A literature review was conducted to examine the issues for women in the criminal justice system, the challenges they face pre and post imprisonment, and information related to reentry programs. The Project RED program will support women and their children as they work to reintegrate into their communities. This community-based advocacy program will provide a continuum of care to the women by providing supportive services and help them establish self-sufficiency. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
