dc.description.abstractOf the 2,500 children and youth currently placed in out-of-home care in Marion County, 800 are between the ages of 14 and 18. Approximately 100 youth age out of the foster care system in Marion County each year. (About C25) In 2002 the mayor of Indianapolis, Mayor Bart Peterson created a blue print to end homelessness which included creating housing for those young adults transitioning into adulthood. One of the housing programs created as a response to the Mayor’s blue print was examined. The program opened in 2005, but later closed due to lack of funding and sustainability plan. The purpose of this project was to research reasoning and logic behind closing the program. A sustainability plan for the program was created after the completion of interviews, literature reviews and research of similar programs.en_US
