Leo from South Bend, IN

Working on getting a job & moving out of poverty! I need a security deposit.

I need a security deposit to move to a place to live where I can be healthy and safe. My current home has sewage leaks and infestations.

My need and situation

I am a 56 year old woman and I have been looking for jobs. The only thing stopping me from getting a job is my background. I have graduated from Bridges Out of Poverty's financial management class and Getting Ahead class. They have really helped prepare me to budget and move forward in my life.

My goals are to enter the food industry and the cleaning industry. I pray to God every night for his blessings. With his guidance and my hard work I feel like we can make this happen.

I need a place to live where I can be healthy and safe. My current home has sewage leaks and infestations.

Meeting this need will help me because once I can worry less about how awful the building is I can focus on moving forward in my life. I worry every day and night about what is going to go wrong next where I am living now.
