Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Enhancing youth shelter services through mental health education and training: A grant proposal
by Covarrubias, Andrea N., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 75; 1499145
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to enhance youth shelter services through the provision of mental health training and education for the staff who work with runaway and homeless youth, to identify a potential funding source and to complete a grant application to fund the project at South Bay Community Service's Casa Nuestra Youth Shelter in San Diego County. An extensive literature review was conducted to determine the needs and challenges faced by both runaway and homeless youth and service providers. The Boys and Girls Foundation was identified and selected as a potential funding source for the proposed project. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
