Each year the number of homeless Americans rises and in Los Angeles County alone, there was a dramatic increase in homelessness over the past year. In LA County, it is estimated that 30 percent of the homeless population has some form of a severe mental illness (Los Angeles Times, 2017). For individuals living with severe mental illness, the transition from an institution (i.e. psychiatry hospital, mental health hospital) into the community can be difficult and often unsuccessful. Rarely are patients with mental illness allowed the time to continue treatment before they are forced back into the community to live on their own. Clearview House aims to decrease the number of homeless and imprisoned individuals living with mental illness by offering transitional therapies as well as support to live a healthy and meaningful life. The mission of Clearview House is to provide quality care and support for a vulnerable population struggling with mental illness to help them live an independent life and become a contributing member of society. Clearview House will work with hospitals and mental institutions in Los Angeles County to help those with mental illness successfully transition into the community. This proposal will provide an analysis of how Clearview House will aim to accomplish these goals.
