Abstract

This is an summative evaluation of the Homeless Chronically Mentally Ill program which examined the impact of case management and the outcome of the program on participant's substance abuse usage. Twenty-six participants' participated in the study. Participants were evaluated by two scales, the Client Satisfaction Questionnaire and the Reid-Gundlach Social Service Satisfaction Scale. Participants were sampled from those who were admitted into the HCMI program. The result of the study revealed that the majority (73.1) of those surveyed were satisfied overall with the program and 73.1 percent felt they could count on their social worker in times of trouble. This indicates that the HCMI program is meeting its goal to serve those veterans who are homeless and chronically mentally ill in order to help them reconnect into society.
