Larry from Chicago, IL

I'm a newly housed Navy veteran. A bed will get me off the floor & ease my pain.

Recently moved into unfurnished senior housing; a bed & household items will help me sleep so I can go to work on time & reduce the pain in my hips.

Larry's all moved in! Dec 8, 2014

Larry's home is finally furnished after your generous support! Larry and his Case Manager went shopping and got a futon among many other items for his home. He is so grateful for your help in making his house a home just in time for the holidays. Best to you all!

My need and situation

My name is Larry and I've been a participant at North Side Housing for four years. I'm a U.S. Navy veteran and I recently started training for a job at the Hines VA. I've recently moved to an unfurnished studio in senior housing.

My goals are to find a full-time, permanent job in the food service or medical field with my food sanitation licenses. I also aim to maintain my housing and volunteer with youth, veterans, and the elderly.

I moved into my new apartment on August 1st and have no furniture to my name. I need a full-sized bed, dresser, microwave oven, and household items.

Meeting this need will help me because it would help me sleep at night so I can go to work on time. I currently experience hip pains from sleeping on the floor and this affects my sleep and job performance.

Thank you for helping Larry fund this need.
