RT from Chicago, IL

Survivor of homelessness. Help me purchase living essentials for my new space.

I'm ready to thrive on my own. I need a microwave, skillet, bedding, mop, bucket, and an alarm clock to successfully transition to my new life.

My need and situation

I am a 55-year-old survivor who is trying to establish myself on my own two feet again. I recently acquired my own place, but I cannot afford some basic necessities which will help me settle and thrive.

My long-term goals are to have peace of mind, maintain my health, and to get involved in the community. In the near-term, I want to be able to complete my transition into stable housing as I get back on my feet.

I need a microwave, skillet, bedding, mop and bucket, and an alarm clock to successfully transition to my new life in my own place.

Meeting this need will help me because then I will be able to create the life I want to live, cook my own bacon, and spend time outdoors without risking my safety.

I've been working with RT since the fall of 2015. In that time he has consistently surprised me with his upbeat demeanor and persistence. Mr. RT has successfully obtained housing and the assistance he is requesting would go a long way towards helping him transition from homelessness to stable housing.
