Dulcinea

Dulcinea from Chicago, IL

On my path out of homelessness. W/ a tablet computer I can be connected to my family.

To keep our marriage healthy, along with our physical and mental health, my husband and I need to see each other and be in contact.

Overview

I recently moved into an SRO after being homeless for 4 years. Not by our own choice, my husband I are living separately, due to his medical issues.

My goals are to improve my own health, for my husband's health to improve so that he doesn't have to continue staying in a nursing home, and to find an apartment where the two of us can live together.

To keep our marriage healthy, along with our physical and mental health, my husband and I need to see each other and be in contact. It is not always possible to visit him at the nursing home, which takes over an hour via public transportation. A tablet computer would greatly help in us being able to communicate with each other via facetime type apps and messaging.

Meeting this need will help me and my husband to remain hopeful for our future of being housed together. It will help us mentally and spiritually to remain connected and to support one another through life's trials. A tablet computer will also aid in my job search, as there are time limits on computer use at the library.

I've known Dulcinea through the Lincoln Park Community Shelter, where she stayed as a Guest. Dulcinea was incredibly focused on her goals, and remained fastidious in seeking housing. She has given back by regularly volunteering at LPCS, for which we are incredibly grateful!
