Angela from Chicago, IL

I'm overcoming cancer & homelessness. I need bus passes to look for work!

I am working hard to improve my situation, but I need a bus pass in order to find and travel to a job each day.

My need and situation

I am a homeless woman that wants to better herself and be able to help other people one day too.

My goals are to find a stable place to live and a job to support myself. In the future I would also like to find time to volunteer to help others in my situation.

I need help getting a 30 day bus pass. I am currently waiting for my Ride For Free Application to be processed. Also, I need to get my father's death certificate and my birth certificate in order to apply for benefits and improve my current situation.

Meeting this need will help me by allowing me to get around the city more easily as I look for work. Having access to my father's death certificate will allow me to receive benefits, as he is a veteran. My birth certificate will allow me to apply for benefits and assistance that I do not currently have access to.

Thank you for helping Angela fund this need.

I have been working with Angela for about a month now. She is trying to find housing and employment and I have seen her work hard to do this. She has a lot of special circumstances but she does not let that get her down all the time. She has these goals and is doing her best to accomplish them.
