Craig wanted to send his thanks! Jul 3, 2014

Craig says, "I first wanted to respond directly to you and thank you for the generous support I have received. The funds will go a long way as I complete the initial certifications needed to move on to the mentoring stage and ultimately an independent home energy analyst! I couldn't be happier and will keep my supporters and the Benevolent Team lifted up so that they may powerfully manifest throughout the earth!!"

My need and situation

I have 11+ years of experience in public administration and am having difficulty re-entering the workforce. Therefore, I am embarking on a career change as a Home Energy Auditor.

My goals are to find full-time employment as a Building Analyst, thereby being able to obtain permanent housing.

I need bus passes for transportation in order to complete the two-month Building Science Program and continue on to the one-month Mentoring Program which will lead to full-time employment.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to obtain housing, food and clothing upon gaining full-time employment.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Craig fund this need.

I have been working with Craig through case management here at Chicago Lights. Craig is currently pursuing his certification to become a Home Energy Auditor. I am also working with Craig on achieving his housing goals and clothing needs. Craig only has three months left of his program until he can find full-time employment. Craig has been honest and highly motivated to achieve his goals and is very deserving of this help.
