Nichole from Oakland, CA

I’m a former foster youth & I need car repairs to get to work & school

I’m a student in San Francisco and in transitional housing in the East Bay. I need new brakes and alignment to make the commute safely.


I need new brakes and alignment for the car I use to commute to school across the Bay. 

My goal is to become a marketing and promotions director. I want to learn how to self-advertise as well as build a brand that is well known (Steve Jobs did it!).

I am getting ready to exit the transitional housing program, and am very focused on continuing my education. Having a safe and reliable ride will help me on that goal.

I will use this donation and put it with my own money (from my part-time job) to reach my goal.

I'm from Oakland, CA, and I live in Oakland. Something interesting about me is I am crafty and innovative. I'm happiest when I accomplish something valuable in school, church, and accomplish goals. I'm most proud of my attitude towards life.

I write music and I am learning to direct my own videos for 2014 and on. I am a student at City College of San Francisco.

Validated by Kamela from Beyond Emancipation (What does this mean?)

We met when I obtained employment at Beyond Emancipation. Nichole and I meet weekly for case management and household meetings.

This will help her reach her goals by allowing her to have reliable transportation to get to and from work and school and also prepare her for independence when she exits out of transitional housing. Many of her goals are centered around educate and employment, and this would drastically improve the outcomes of those things by allowing her to get to where she needs to be safely.
