The purpose of this project is to write a grant proposal to fund a series of short term groups that provide a combination of social and emotional support. The goal is to reduce and prevent homelessness rates in families in the city of La Habra, Orange County, California. Support and Resources for Homeless Families will provide culturally competence support to homeless families. Additionally, many homeless families are not aware of the resources they might be eligible. Subsequently, some homeless families have difficulties navigating through complex systems that they have never encountered. The literature revealed that many programs have been attempted to decrease and prevent homelessness. However, the programs with higher success rates used a combination of peer-support with resources and services. The literature review also examined the extensive causes of homelessness. Therefore, the proposed project will seek to address some barriers to homelessness. Submission and/or funding were not required for the successful completion of the project.
