Cassandra from Chicago, IL

I'm training to be an Administrative Assistant. Need bus passes to make it to class.

It's difficult to get around in the cold weather with my disability. Transportation vouchers will help me complete my training program.

My need and situation

I am 49 years old and I am taking classes at Center for Changing Lives to get into the Administrative Training program.

My goals are to seek employment working at a front desk and secure permanent housing so that I can leave the shelter I am currently staying in.

I need bus fare to get back and forth between the classes. I also need funds for paratransit vouchers for the upcoming winter because of my disability. It is difficult for me to get around in the cold weather.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to get to Center for Changing Lives, take the classes, and get into the Administrative Training program.
