Randy from Chicago, IL

I'm determined to find work & housing. I just need one certification to get a job!

I need help paying for a Forklift Certification course so I can get back to work.

My need and situation

I am a man that needs my own place to live. I need a job to pay for it so I can live on my own and take care of myself.

I want to have full time employment. My goal is to get a Forklift Certification so I can be more valuable to the job market. I want to be able to pay rent and have a trade until I retire.

I need help paying for a Forklift Certification course so I can get back to work and back into stable housing once again.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to find stable employment and eventually my own housing.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Randy fund this need.

I know Randy through the case management program at the Chicago Lights- Elam Davies Social Service Center. He is highly committed to his employment search and housing goals. He has a positive attitude and is a very hard worker. I believe this Forklift Certification would give him the extra boost he needs on his resume and self-esteem.
