My need and situation
I am a 56-year-old woman currently working part time. I enjoy working with the public and have been looking for full-time work as a cashier.
My goals are to get a RV trailer and find full-time employment. This would enable me to get caught up on my bills, save money to get into a home and get my life back on track.
I need assistance with a down payment. I am currently homeless and looking to get an RV. Right now I have been staying in a hotel or in my car. With my job, I can afford monthly payments, just not the down payment.
Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to have a place of my own. It will cost a lot less than staying in hotels and make it easier for me to save money so I can continue forward to a better future.
Thank you for helping Ann fund this need.

I have known Ann for over a year since first coming to our resource center for help. Ann has been very proactive in our resource center. I worked with Ann on her housing goals, helped her with interview clothing and other basic needs items. Ann visits the center 2-3 times a week to search for full time employment, post resume and build her computer skills with online courses.
I think helping Ann reach her housing goal will provide her the self-sufficient stability to get back on her feet with a safe warm place to call home. And, would make it less difficult to secure full time employment to ensure a better future.
