My need and situation
I am a Chicago native from the West Side. I'm currently working part-time and have a young son. I also have a daughter on the way in May.
My goals are to continue working at my current job and seek out additional employment. I want to find low-income housing for myself and my young son. I enjoy when he visits, but I am working to gain full custody.
I need to pay for the cost to reinstate my license in order to pay my own way toward independence. I have a job offer waiting for me, pending the my drivers license being reinstated.
Meeting this need will help me because I'll have another part-time job, which will provide me with a stable income to take care of my children and afford housing for my family.

I've known Brian through case management services at the EDSSC for a few months. He is a hard-working dad who wants to provide the best living situation for his children. He's eager to take on a second job, but needs assistance reinstating his driver's license in order to start the position. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!
