Michael from Brooklyn, NY

I'm having trouble getting rest. An air mattress would make a difference!

I am staying w/ my mother but I have had to sleep on the floor. This has really hurt my health; an air mattress & bedding will let me get proper rest.

My need and situation

I am a father of a 2 year old son. I have been sleeping on the floor or my mother's apartment due to over crowding.

My goals are to obtain permanent housing. I do not want to go to a shelter due to my mental illness.

I need an air mattress and some bedding to sleep comfortably. So I would not have to sleep on the hard floor.

Meeting this need will help me because get some proper rest. The proper rest that I need dealing with my mental illness.

I have known Michael as my probationer for the last 2 in half years. Michael has been mentally ill for more than half of his adult life. I have worked with his housing needs along with his direct care specialist. Due to his mental illness he is scared to even enter a homeless shelter at this time so he has to reside with his mother. His mother's apartment is filled to capacity and he has to resort to sleeping on the floor. If the client receives this portable bed with sheets he can sleep more conformably.
