Jonathan from Berkeley, CA

Overcoming homelessness. A bed will let me build stability.

I recently found housing, and I am sleeping on an air mattress. A bed will give me a place to sleep and start each day rested and ready.


Jonathan's new furniture have given him a stable and comfortable home base! Aug 3, 2016

We just got word from Jonathan's validator Laura at Berkeley Food and Housing Project that Jonathan has received his furniture. Laura says,:

"Jonathan's new furniture was delivered recently and he could not be happier! He has been working a full time job and loves coming home and being able to relax. Thank you SO much for your help!"


I am am new to the Bay Area from Georgia and am looking to establish myself as an independent person and start a new life. I love being around my friends and exploring new places around me. I look forward to continuing to make the Bay Area my home.

My ultimate goal is to own my own wholistic healthcare facility. Right now, I am working hard to get a full-time position as a mental health worker to gain new experiences.

I need a functional sofa bed and some stools for my apartment. I currently have two chairs in my apartment and am sleeping on a inflatable mattress. I want to be able to make my apartment my home.

Getting furniture will help me create a home that I am proud of and comfortable in. Also, I'll be able to get a good night's rest and be my best self in order to reach my goals.
