People with psychiatric disabilities experience difficulty in obtaining and maintaining employment. The purpose of this project was to design an accelerated supported employment program for individuals diagnosed with psychiatric disabilities, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund the program. The program will be offered by Homes for Life Foundation, a non-profit housing corporation located in Los Angeles, California. The potential funding to be secured by the grant is important because it will ensure that adults diagnosed with psychiatric disabilities who reside at Homes for Life Foundation receive vocational rehabilitation services. The Weingart Foundation was identified as a potential source of funding for the program. An extensive literature review was conducted to demonstrate the effectiveness of accelerated supported employment in helping individuals with psychiatric disabilities sustain employment. Securing funding for the project was not a thesis requirement.
