Javier from East SF Bay, CA

I’ve just got my truck driving license, but I need an eye exam and new glasses to succeed at my job

I’ve been in trouble, but am turning my life around. I have a son on the way and a new career. Better vision will help me succeed at all my goals.


I need an eye exam and a new pair of glasses. Meeting this need will help me because I have been having a hard time at work reading the labels on boxes. Since I have had my glasses for so long, I cannot see that well. I really want to keep my job so they can make me permanent. Also, being a truck driver, I need to have good vision on the road.

My current situation is that I am trying to get back up on my feet after being in a bit of trouble. I recently got a job and have been able to pay back people who have helped me on the way. I also just found out I am going to be a father and I am trying to prepare for the baby. I also studied for my truck driving license and got it this year. So I am hoping, with time, I will be able to get my dream job.

My goal is to get the job of my dreams, and hopefully one day have my own company so my son will see even though I had a hard life, I fought to make it better for him.

I'm from the Bay Area and have lived here all my life. I live with my niece, and her family. Something interesting about me is that I love anything that has to do with extraterrestrials. I'm happiest when I'm able to walk and enjoy the surroundings. I'm most proud of getting my truck drivers' license.

I am going to be a dad for the first time in a couple of months and am waiting anxiously for the arrival of my son.

I had been in trouble for a couple of years and now i am trying to change my life around for the better.

We met when Javier came in for the medical clinic. He had just been released and needed to see a doctor for an inhaler.

I think meeting this need is important because Since his release he has been changing his life around. He got a stable job and his trucking license. He really wants to keep his job but he needs his glasses to see the packages and to be able to see on the road.

I think Javier is doing great and will continue to show a major change. His life right now is looking good and with his hard work and determination he will be able to accomplish his goals and dreams of having his own trucking business.
