Marcus from Detroit, MI

I'm a Marine veteran & father of 5. Beds will make sure my kids rest comfortably.

I pride myself on taking care of my children & making sure they have a stable home. I need help with beds to get my children and I off the floor.

Marcus sends his thanks and says, "Only by the Grace of God" Feb 12, 2015

It is by the grace of God that my story reached my donors. It is by His mercy strangers who have never met myself or my children would help us through a tough time. I would like to let every one of the donors know my children and I have beds thanks to your generosity. God bless you all. I will make sure to pay it forward in the future to help someone in need as you have done for my family. Thank You.

My need and situation

I am an unemployed veteran and father of five. I am focused on enhancing the lives of my children and myself. I believe a good education will take you a long way in this world. I pride myself on taking care of my children seeing to it they have clean clothes, food in their belly and a roof over their head.

My goals are to create a better life for my children and myself. I would like a better paying career that will allow more long term benefits for my family.

I need assistance with beds to get my children and I off the floor. I would like 5 twin beds and a full bed.

Meeting this need will help me because beds will allow my children to have a better night sleep. Having a good night sleep will allow for a better focus at school.

I met Marcus when he came in seeking services we provide to veterans. Marcus is a veteran that has been seeking assistance from the VA after falling through the cracks and has to start over. His family could really use a hand.
