Recently housed and employed! A bed will get me off the floor & ready for work.

I just moved into an apartment after several difficult years. To feel rested, healthy, and ready for work, I need a bed!

Aisha is doing well! Mar 6, 2017

Aisha's validator Kayla from the Center for Changing Lives has brought us a promising update about Aisha and her educational journey. Kayla says:

"Aisha is working and continues to move towards her goals. She has purchased a bed and is saving up for a laptop to go back to school. She is grateful for all of the support and is using this money to help pay her rent for March so that she can continue to save. Thank you to everyone who supported her!"

My need and situation

I have been homeless for the past 2 years and finally got my own apartment. I'm 28 and just got a job at a restaurant that starts next week. I need a bed so that I can get a good night's sleep for work. I also enjoy reading and writing.

My goals are to furnish my apartment, maintain my job, pay off debts, and save up some money so that I can be financially stable.

Right now, I am sleeping on the floor of my apartment and it's cold. I need a bed and sheets so that I can feel comfortable in my apartment.

Meeting this need will help me because I will get a good night's rest and be prepared for work the next day, which will help me keep my job.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Aisha fund this need.
