Tyquawn from Staten Island, New York

Excited to become a dad! Need some essential items to welcome my baby into the world.

I'm in a vocational program for carpentry right now, making it tough to buy the essentials my baby will need to grow up healthy!

My need and situation

I am a 20 year old who is about to enroll into a vocational trade school for carpentry. I have been trying to save up money for the tuition. I have found out that I am about to become a new father and I need to purchase items for my child on the way.

My goals are to become a carpenter and provide for my family. I would like very much to one day own my own construction company and employ young people in need of work. I plan to make my child proud of me by becoming my own boss. My ambition is to one day hand my company down to my child.

I need to secure the items my child is going to need when he or she arrives. If I am able to do this then I could use the money I have saved to pay for my tuition and become a productive father to my child.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to secure a crib and a stroller or other items that cost more then what I have saved up for my tuition.

Validated by Verona from NYC Department of Probation (What does this mean?)

I have worked with Tyquawn for over seven months and he has been dedicated to working towards getting enrolled in a vocational program to become a carpenter. He is taking becoming a father very seriously and has expressed the need to be ready when his child arrives. Tyquawn would do well with any help that can be given to assist him in his goals.
