Angela from Chicago, IL

Trained & ready to start job interviews. I just need bus passes to get there!

I'm working hard towards my goals of employment and self-sufficiency. Transportation will help as I begin attending interviews & employment workshops.

My need and situation

I am a young woman participating in the Dress for Success employment program for women. I'm trying to get back on my feet by working hard and completing my tasks and goals.

My goals are to have a good job with full benefits and to be self-sufficient.

I need bus passes (three 30-Day passes) as I visit job fairs, job interviews, and employment workshops through Dress for Success's employment program.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to make it to job interviews and then get a job, which enables me to be self-sufficient.

Angela is a strong and motivated woman who wants to make a difference in her life. Throughout her year in my agency's program, the only barrier to her success has been her access to transportation. Angela will go to job interview after job interview, and I am confident she will be hired; she just needs the resources to get there! Helping Angela with this little need will have a ripple effect on her overall life and ability to support herself. Thanks for considering!
