Increased mental health services for the homeless
by Deutsch, David, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 80; 1486303
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant proposal was to develop and fund a project to increase the level of mental health services for homeless persons in Ventura, California, and to fund a counseling program for families who have a member with mental illness. Turning Point Foundation, located in Ventura County, California, was the agency selected as the focus of this project.

After conducting a thorough review of the literature examining the most effective interventions for homeless clients with mental health problems, the grant writer designed a comprehensive counseling and case management program. After searching public and private potential funding sources, The California Endowment was identified as the best fit because their primary goals were congruent with the mission of Turning Point Foundation.

Actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
