Kenny says thank you! Apr 13, 2017

Kenny's validator Jackie at Chicago Lights has let us know that he's thrilled to have reached his goal.

Kenny said, "Even though the world can be loud and hectic, I feel safe and comfortable in my new home. Thank you to the generous donor who helped me get new household items!'"

My need and situation

I am a Veteran originally from Detroit, but have called Chicago home for 30 years. I'm a father and grandfather and enjoy spending time with my family when I can make out to Detroit for a visit.

My goals are join a senior health club and quit smoking cigarettes. I'm committed to living a healthy lifestyle and I'm focused on achieving these goals.

I need household essentials and furniture because I just received a voucher for Veteran housing in Chicago. I have some of my belongings in storage, but I need a few pieces of furniture to help make my new apartment a comfortable home.

Meeting this need will help me because I'm on a limited income. Having all my household essentials will mean I get a good night's rest, and can work on my healthy living goals as well.

I've known Kenny for about 7 years, having worked with him at a previous social service center setting. Kenny has been coming to the EDSSC for several years, and has always been a pleasure to catch up with. He is consistently working on achieving new goals, and we're excited he has a new housing opportunity. Helping Kenny with his need will allow him to make his new apartment a comfortable home, and he will be able to focus his time on working on healthy living goals. Thank you for any assistance you can provide!
