by Wade, Jasmine Rose, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 71; 1499312
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to evaluate potential funding sources and write a grant for U.S. Vets of Long Beach, an agency providing residential services to male veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Veterans Re-entry Program assists homeless veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder in obtaining housing, returning to school or work, and learning coping skills. A grant was completed to request funding for a comprehensive evaluation of the current program design and outcomes by outside researchers. Results of the proposed evaluation would be used to improve and expand the program. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not required for the successful completion of this project. The project found a need for more scholarly literature on social work practice with veterans. More social work education regarding military practice is also recommended to serve a diverse population with increasing needs.
