Sierra from Chicago, IL

I'm recently housed after homelessness. I need a stroller and other baby supplies for my newborn

I need a stroller and other essential baby items to ensure that my baby will be safe while traveling with me to my appointments in search for school.

My need and situation

My family and I were recently accepted into a permanent housing program after being being homeless for nearly a year. Currently, I'm in need of essential baby items to help me care for my newborn.

I need a stroller, a bassinet and blankets for my new baby. Right now my biggest challenge is to be able to travel with my newborn and have somewhere safe for her to sleep.

My current situation is that I'm a mother of 5 children. My youngest daughter was born on 7/29/13.

Despite everything my family has been through while homeless, they have remained happy and secure.

I'm sensitive to my children's needs and want to improve our situation so they can grow up and be successful and well adjusted adults.

Meeting this need will help me because I won't have to worry about meeting all of my family's needs.

I think of myself mostly as a friendly person. I'm a caring and supportive mother. I'm sensitive to my children's needs and want to improve our situation so they can grow up and be successful and well adjusted adults.

 

I'm most proud of being a mother to 4 happy children. Despite everything my family has been through while homeless, they have remained happy and secure.
Something interesting about me is I never give up and have a positive attitude.

My goal is to go back to school. I've worked at jobs including gardening and landscaping.

I have known Sierra for about 2 months. Sierra and I met when I began working at Inspiration Corporation in July 2013. I currently conduct home visits with Sierra and her family and assist them in creating and achieving goals.

I think meeting this need is important because it will allow Sierra to care for her newborn daughter.

This will move Sierra's life forward by allowing her to use her family's limited resources on other household needs.

In the time I have worked with Sierra, I have witnessed what an amazing mother she is to her children and I've been really impressed with her abilty to maintain a positive attitude even in times of stress.
