My need and situation

I am a 20 year old unemployed youth. I am currently residing in a shelter. I recently earned my High School equivalency diploma and would like one day to attend college. Due to my current home situation at this time securing employment is my top priority so that I can get an apartment of my own.

My goal is to one day attend college and earn a degree. My plan at this time is to secure employment and permanent housing. My ambition in life is to become financially stable and become successful in the work place.

I need to purchase business attire for job opportunity interviews. At this time I need suit, tie, shoes and dress shirts. I need these items so I can be presentable.

Meeting this need will help me because I am in need of securing employment and obtaining permanent housing to be self sufficient financially.
