Sheree from Detroit, MI

A computer will ensure I can finish my online classes while caring for newborn twins!

I'm a single mother of 6 studying to become a social worker. Meeting this need will allow me to care for my children while continuing my studies.

Sheree's got her laptop! Feb 23, 2015

Sheree received her laptop and is overjoyed. She is currently in school and loves the fact that she can do her home work while her babies sleep at night.

My need and situation

I'm 30 years of age. I have 6 children, single and working to continue my education as a social worker

My goals are to become a social worker. I would love to work at the Department of Human Services were many people can be helped.

I need a computer so that I can take online classes. I want to continue my goal of becoming a social worker.

Meeting this need will help me because I just had twin girls they are 3 months old, so I can be a stay-at-home mom. While I am caring for my newborns, I will continue to better myself by furthering my education for my children.

I have know Sheree as her case planner at COTS. Sheree was expecting twin girls when I met her and was having a difficult pregnancy. At that time she expressed to me her desire to want more for her children. After her babies were born she let me know when the girls turned 3 months old she wanted to start working and to go back to school. I have seen her drive and determination and I feel she would benefit having a laptop and being able to work and study from home while taking care of her family.
