Creative Sources of Funding for Programs for Homeless Families.
Siemon, Dorothy; Doherty, Diane M., Ed.
This monograph was written to inform organizations working with homeless families about some potential sources of funding for their programs and to briefly describe the benefits available to homeless families. The focus throughout is exclusively on services and not on housing. Readers are guided to the major resources available through both the Federal Government and the private sector. Successful fundraising strategies used by homeless providers are discussed and a few creative ideas for special fundraising events are included. Individual sections focus on how to develop a fundraising program; federal funding specifically for the homeless (e.g., The Stewart B. McKinney Act); useful federal programs not targeted for the homeless; private sources of program funds, including foundations, corporations and businesses, religious institutions, and individual donors; and federal programs that provide benefits and services to homeless families (Aid to Families with Dependent Children; Supplementary Security Income; Social Security; Veterans Benefits; Food Stamps; Women, Infants, and Children Program; Medicare; the Job Training Partnership Act; Medicaid; and Headstart). A 2-page annotated bibliography is included; a 28-page annotated address list is appended. (NB)
