To Be Served Population (s) This initiative serves Florida’s homeless people with mental disorders. This population is hard to reach and would benefit from affordable healthcare. To select 22 people from the target population, convenience sampling will be used. Target group: Mentally ill African Americans, Hispanics living in poverty and Hispanics with mental disabilities. Lincoln and surrounding communities would make up the target group. The total Lincoln population is 13.3% Hispanic, Native American and Asian.
Results of the project
Its primary objective is to increase the quality of life for Florida’s homeless by providing housing that’s safe and by improving health services. It will be easier for policy makers to implement and enforce policies to tackle the public health problem of homelessness. Collaborating with both local and federal officials will help push for improvements in legislation. Legal strategies can also be used to address issues such as health insurance, and change eligibility criteria in order to help the homeless. The medical care platform will undergo modifications to reduce Florida’s homeless population. Hospitals will provide aftercare and ambulatory services for patients with mental disorders. Since most homeless persons cannot afford to put their health first while also requiring basic necessities such as shelter and food, efforts will be made on the streets to provide primary care.
The initiative, once it is completed, will help homeless people with mental illness, community groups, policymakers and other interested parties. The initiative will inform politicians and community groups, as well as other interested parties, about the needs of people with mental illnesses who are homeless. It also provides solutions that can be used to provide affordable housing for them and help get off the streets.
For the purpose of evaluating these goals, survey, questionnaires, or polls will all be used. To begin with, the objective is to evaluate whether hospitalizations have declined or if primary care visits have increased. It aims to improve access to healthcare and decrease hospital readmissions. The hospital data will be used to calculate the amount of homeless people receiving medical care. An increase in the number will signify the success of this initiative. Second, the goal was to create stable living environments and reduce Florida’s number of homeless. Before the project can be initiated, it will first be surveyed to assess the existing population and then compare that to the expected population. Close relatives of the homeless will receive questionnaires and polls to help them understand their mental health. The relatives will talk about the changes they have experienced in their lives and how their living situations have changed.
