Desiree from Gastonia, NC

Ready to become a CNA. I'm just one car repair away from getting there!

I need to get my transmission repaired. Once I do so, I will be able to attend mny CNA classes while I work part time.

My need and situation

I am a 45 year single mother with a son and a daughter ages 12 and 14 year old. I'm presently working with the Urban League to help assist me in developing and updating my resume and interviewing skills.

My goals are to attain employment and return to school to receive my certification as a CNA.

I need to get my transmission repaired. I purchased my car a year ago and has had car problem ever since. After several trips to the shop, I was told that the transmission had to be replaced. I lost my job last month because of this problem and it difficult for me to find employment.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to find employment and and attend CNA classes.

When she informed me that she was having problems with her car and her inability to keep a job, we wanted to see how we could assist so we reached out to the Benevolent program.
