I am more than pleased that Kelleye's need for a laptop to assist her with getting her GED has been met. As her case planner and someone who has worked closely with Kelleye I know how much this will improve her educational research and goals. Thank you to all supporters!

My need and situation

I need a laptop for school assignments and to study.  This includes a laptop with Microsoft Office software. 

Meeting this need will help me because it will help me with my school work and allow me to gain my GED.  My goal is to learn more about computers and better access my school work so that I can pass the GED testing coming up.  Once I pass the test I plan on continuing my education and having access to a computer will allow me to continue my studies. 

I am determined to get my GED and don't want lack of access to a computer to get in my way of passing the test that is coming up.

My current situation is that I am taking GED classes that require me to access the computer to study.  I do not have transportation and the bus system is unreliable, often getting me to the library after it has closed. 

I'm from Detroit.  I'm a domestic violence survivor trying to acheive my GED and get a laptop for school assignments. 

I have three adult children.  I love them all and want to shine my light on them and let them know they can further their education.  I'm most proud of myself for going back to school.

I'm happiest when I'm in church.

We met when I began working in the supportive housing department.  I have been seeing Kelleye twice a month for our case management sessions since May 2013.

I think meeting this need is important because Kelleye is working very hard to get her GED so she can further her education.  This need will allow her to utilize the internet for studying and research for educational purposes.
