                                                                                                       Florida Coalition for      1 Goals and Objectives Name Axia College of University of Phoenix                                                                                                        Florida Coalition for      2 Goals and Objectives With homelessness on the rise in the United States because of the current economic status, there is a high need for intervention and the availability of Homeless Shelters. Homeless shelters are in dire need with the record number of homeless people without a place to stay. According to Wikipedia, “Homeless shelters are temporary residences for homeless people. Usually located in urban neighborhoods, they are similar to emergency shelters. The primary difference is that homeless shelters are usually open to anyone, without regard to the reason for need”. Homeless shelters are even sometimes limited by particular genders and ages. For instance, some shelters are open only for women and children. Homeless shelters are non profit organizations and sometimes associated   with   churches.   Homeless   shelters   have   different   goals   and   objectives depending on the location and type. Moreover, homeless shelters are one of the few reasons that homeless people have food, a place to sleep, and in some cases, managed alcohol consumption.  The   Florida   Coalition   for   the   homeless   (2010)   is   an   organization   whose membership includes homeless advocates, service providers, members of the faith­based community, formerly homeless persons, educators, attorneys, mental health professionals and many others statewide who are committed to putting an end and improving the conditions of persons living without shelter.  Their objectives and goals were clearly declared. One of the short­term goals of this was ultimately to eliminate homeless individuals from staying on the streets in order to seek alcohol. Another two part long­                                                                                                        Florida Coalition for      3 term goal was to ultimately eliminate homeless individuals from seeking unsafe sources of alcohol in things such as mouthwash, rubbing alcohol or industrial products. The other part of this long­term goal was to eliminate the frequent use of medical facilities and encounters with police. These goals and objectives are manifested because they are deliberate and intended. Because this type of homeless shelter has its goals and objectives clearly stated, it was to distinguish between the two. The objective of this “homeless shelter” is to effectively eliminate homeless individuals from staying on the streets and using unsafe sources for alcohol. The goals are to decrease the number of police encounters and emergency medical attention needed by homeless individuals because of this. These goals and objectives are excellent for the location and resolution to the previous problems. According to the American Medical Association Journal (2007), “in 2006 found that serving chronic street alcoholics controlled doses of alcohol also reduced their overall alcohol consumption. Researchers found that program participants cut their alcohol use from an average of 46 drinks a day when they entered the program to an average of 8 drinks and that their trips to hospital emergency rooms drop to an average of eight a month from 13.5 while encounters with the police fall to an average of 8.8 from 18.1”. According to those results I would conclude that this programs objectives and goals are being met. This new principle is very successful and could be adapted in more places than just Florida. Overall, homeless shelters are necessary in order to help less fortunate people have a place to eat and sometimes sleep. With the economy’s condition assisting people                                                                                                        Florida Coalition for      4 in losing their homes, more people are becoming homeless to no avail. Homeless shelters provide the best choice in these situations. Many states such as Florida  have taken an extra step to help homeless people. In specific, they are helping homeless people who enjoy alcoholic beverages. Their objectives and goals are very clear. Some of these include ultimately eliminating homeless individuals from staying on the streets in order to seek alcohol, eliminate homeless individuals from seeking unsafe sources of alcohol in things such as mouthwash, rubbing alcohol or industrial products, and eliminate the frequent use of medical facilities and encounters with police. Moreover, homeless shelters provide a principle way of handling alcohol abuse by providing a managed alcohol consumption that can be adapted anywhere.                                                                                                        Florida Coalition for      5 References Homeless Shelter (2008). Retrieved June 20, 2010 from  Florida Coalition for the Homeless. (2010) Retrieved June 20, 2010, from American Medical Association Journal. (2007). Retrieved June 20, 2010 from             http://jama.ama­
