Dinisha's validator sends her thanks:

"Thank you so much for supporting Dinisha in getting a laptop. We went shopping shortly after she was funded. She has been up and running ever since. She was able to finish up a semester of classes with her new computer which I know really helped her manage her assignments better."

My need and situation

My name is Dinisha and I live in Detroit. I am passionate about cooking and love to make people smile. I am happiest when I am with my daughter and am proud of both her and myself for staying strong through tough times.

My goal is to get a degree so I can advance in my life and support myself through my own merit and employment.

My current situation is I just transitioned out of homelessness and have enrolled in school at Wayne County Community College. A lot of my work I can access online but I don't have a computer to do so.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to do school work in a home environment where I don't have to be stressed about how I am going to complete assignments and access work.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Dinisha fund this need.

I met Dinisha about two months ago as she was referred to me from another shelter for Permanent Supportive Housing.

I think meeting this need is important because she trying so hard to build her life. She is in school and its hard for her to complete her work through other outlets.
