Miranda from Detroit, MI

Physical therapy is hard on my body. A couch will allow me to rest when I come home.

I need living room furniture so that my family has a place to gather and I have a place to rest after my physical therapy.


I am a mother of five children. I am disabled and have a limited income. I am trying to support my family the best way I can but most of my money goes to bills.

My goal is to bring my family closer together and alleviate pain in my body. I would love to get back to work but my disability restricts my movement making it very difficult to find a job that can accommodate my needs. I am a part of a women's group which has provided a lot of support for me and my family over the years. It would be nice to have them come to my place to meet and have somewhere comfortable to sit.

I need living room furniture so that my family has a place to gather, talk and entertain guest without us feeling embarrassed. A couch would also be helpful in providing me with a place to rest after physical therapy which sometimes takes a toll on my body.

Meeting this need will help me because it is the missing link my family needs to feel at home and comfortable. I go to physical therapy twice a week. Having a comfortable place to rest from time to time would be nice.

I met Miranda from my caseload and her son is receiving therapy from Black Family Development. Helping acquire new furniture will assist with her medical needs. To help eliminate her pain Miranda goes to physical therapy twice a week but sitting in plastic chairs counteracts the progress that is made.
