Claremont from Chicago, IL

As I look for work, my kids need student transit passes to get to school.

I need help removing transportation barriers for my two kids so they can get to school reliably while I'm working to secure a full-time job.


I am a mother of two looking for full-time work in the retail industry. I am a VISTA alumni and I have a strong commitment to volunteerism in my community.

My goal is to find full-time employment in order to have more stability in my life and provide for my two children.

I need assistance with student transit fare for my two children to continue their education.

Meeting this need will help me because I can focus on the expenses involved in pursuing full-time employment. Once I'm employed full-time, I will be able to cover transportation costs myself.

Thank you for helping Claremont fund this need.
