Chris has received his computer and bus passes! Dec 8, 2014

Chris has received his computer and was so excited. He has also received the bus passes and will be purchasing a few items of clothing.

My need and situation

I am a technical person and have a great opportunity to add some credentials in computer technology to my skill set. I am extremely excited to experience what I can accomplish after completion of the Focus Hope IT program.

My goal is to finish school at Focus:Hope and continue my career in the IT field. I already assist people with their computer problems. Once I get my certification I can really advertise my skills and expertise...which will help me get jobs and increase my income.

A laptop & bus passes for four months will secure my means of getting to class as well as allow me to practice the skills and techniques learned.

Meeting this need will help me because the bus passes will ensure I get to class without difficulty and the computer will allow me to practice the skills learned in the class at home. A computer is essential to being in the IT field so it will support my career moving forward.
