I value my kids' education above everything. They need bus fare to make it to school.

Right now, I often have to cut my work hours to drive my kids to & from school. Bus passes will let me keep my hours and make sure they get to class.

My need and situation

I am a single mother of 2 who is currently working part-time hours. I recently had to cut back on my hours because the person who used to take my children to and from school became sick, and is no longer available to do this.

My goals are to enroll my children in a new school system after I move that will provide school bus services. I am planning to move to a new city with my section 8 housing voucher but at this time I am living in Chicago.

I need $200 dollars to cover public transportation costs to take my children to and from school, because my children have to pay reduced fair.

Meeting this need will help me because I would not have to be cutting my hours from work and I would not have to worry about this financial need.

I have been working with Liza for a few months now on housing and social security benefits needs. Liza reported that the person who used to take her children to and from school became sick recently, and now she has been cutting her hours at work so she can take her children to and from school. This will be an immense help for her because she would not have to cut her hours at work. Liza is such a joy to work with and I truly enjoy her positive outlook towards her future.
