Ida from Detroit, Michigan

Caring for my sick parents. My daughter and I need a bed to sleep well and succeed.

My daughter and I live with my parents, who are very sick. All of us are in a small apartment. A sofa bed will get us off the floor and sleeping well.


I'm a caregiver to many people. I love helping people so much that my family calls me the caregiver. I only have one daughter, but so many people call me mom.

My goal is to become a registered nurse. I hope to start school by April.

I need a sofa bed for my daughter since we don't have our own house yet. We live with my parents now. They are severely ill and I care for them, too. My parents live in a one-bedroom apartment, so my daughter and I sleep on the floor.

Meeting this need will help me because my daughter will be able to get a good night's sleep instead of sleeping on the floor.
