Mona from Chicago, IL

Recently housed and getting back on my feet. I need basic household items to thrive.

Basic items such as kitchenware and bedding will help me feel at home and build stability in my new apartment.


I am a recently housed woman trying to get back on my feet and settled in my new apartment.

I hope one day to write a book about my experiences of abuse and homelessness to give hope.

I need some basic household items as I get settled in my new apartment.

If I can get some basic kitchenware, bedding and other household items my house will feel more like a home.
