Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to provide an employment assistance program for homeless men at The Salvation Army Hospitality House in Santa Ana, California. Homelessness and the resulting health, economic, and social problems are significant public concerns and men are overrepresented among the homeless. Unemployment is one of the most cited reasons for being homeless among men residing at the host agency. The proposed program would provide these men with work/trade skills and job placement assistance and help them move from homelessness to self-sufficiency. The Carrie Estelle Doheny Foundation was selected as the most appropriate funding source. If funded, the program would reduce the number of homeless men in the area. The evaluation of the program would also contribute to the knowledge base of social work by demonstrating techniques to implement strength-based, evidence-based practices.
