Caring for my disabled son. A sofa & table will let us eat & spend time as a family.

Having a sofa and dining table will allow us to finally get off the floor to eat dinner and relax as a family.

My need and situation

I am a mother is of a son who's suffering from seizures and mental illness. Taking care of him is a full-time job, so it's been difficult to find time outside to work. My son and I just found our first apartment after living with my father in a one-bedroom apartment.

My goals are to work in the medical field being an assistant. I am almost done with this life-long learning program, but it's been hard to finish with how busy I am caring for my son. Completing the program would allow me to become self-sufficient and to get off disability with my son.

I need a sofa and dining table. Grating this goal will allow us to be more comfortable.

Having a sofa and dining table will allow us to finally get off the floor to eat dinner and relax as a family.

Betty and her son been apart of my case load for a few years. Betty is a strong woman with a lot of determination. Reaching this goal would be a huge leap up for her and her son.
