The purpose of this project was to partner with a host agency, Student Success and Support Program at California State University Long Beach (CSULB), locate a potential funding source, The W.M. Keck Foundation, and write a grant proposal to obtain funding for a housing program that would address the special needs of the homeless student population at CSULB. A literature review was conducted to examine the underlying causes of student homelessness, the unique barriers homeless students face, and the existing programs addressing this issue as it impacts student retention. The housing program will work to increase retention among students experiencing homelessness by providing housing, and intensive support services. The actual submission or endowment of this grant was not a requisite for the successful completion of the project.
