by Chang, Jacquelyn R., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2020, 53; 27829164
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a grant proposal and fund a program for transitional aged youth (TAY) aged from 18-25 who were homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. The host agency for this project was the TAY Academy, located in Long Beach, California.

An analysis of the literature revealed that TAY are at risk for homelessness because of financial insecurity, substance misuse, and mental health problems. All of these risk factors hinder the ability of TAY to successfully transition to adulthood. The program will use a mobile closet, staffed by youth outreach workers and case managers, to provide basic services and assist with connecting TAY with community services to reduce homelessness. The funding source identified for the proposed program is the California Community Foundation.

The actual submission and funding of this grant proposal was not a requirement for the completion of this project.
