My need and situation

I was homeless and sleeping on the streets for over ten years. I was recently housed through a social service agency and am now ready to start working on my goals!

My goals are to obtain stable housing and obtain employment.

I need to renew my expired state ID so I am eligible to apply for employment.

Meeting this need will help me because I currently do not have an income and am unable to pay for the renewal fee. Without an updated ID I am not eligible for employment or to apply for benefits.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Dwayne fund this need.

I met Dwayne through the case management program at the EDSSC. He is really excited about his new apartment and stable living. In order to maintain his stability he needs a new ID so he can begin applying for jobs and benefits! It would be so great to see Dwayne receive this help.
