    Dear Student,
    Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. In this particular task, you are asking for help in putting together a discussion on the topic of doing a program evaluation. I suggest using this simple outline:

    1. About the Program - 150 words
    2. Purpose - 100 words
    3. Questions - 100 words
    4. Information to collect - 200 words
    5. The stakeholders/roles/concerns - 150 words
    6. Answers to #5 - 150 words

    This outline should yield 850 words which should cover what you need. Just let me know via the feedback section if you need further clarification. Since you did not indicate the stakeholder program you want to review - I have chosen one arbitrarily as an example. You can also use the listed resources to further explore the topic. All the best with your studies.

    Sincerely,

The research shows that providing housing to someone experiencing chronic homelessness results in reduced utilization of publicly funded services such as police, hospital, emergency and impatient services, and the correctional systems." The obvious direct impact of homelessness is to the homeless - their lack in shelter impacts their ability to live in a safe, secure and adequate space so that they are always at risk, not to mention their ability to find employment as well as connect to society. The National Coalition for the Homeless (2009) estimate that, "approximately 3.5 million people, 1.35 million of them children, are likely to experience homelessness in a given year." As such, transitional programs that help the homeless into having safe shelters for themselves and their families are essential. One such program is Emery Work Bed Program (EWBP) currently operating in Washington, D.C. Each state have a program framework (see this link for ...
