Corey from Chicago, IL

Just need my birth certificate & background check to start applying for jobs!

My goals are to gain employment & find stable housing. These items are the only thing standing between me and a job to be able to get off the streets.

My need and situation

I am a 36-year-old man who has been living on the streets for 2 years. I am currently in the Inspiration Corporation program and am working with a case manager to achieve my goals.

My goals are to gain employment and find stable housing. I have a lot of experience in the service industry and would love to be employed.

I need to get my birth certificate and criminal history report in order to gain employment and apply for housing. These are both important documents and necessary for both of my goals.

Meeting this need will help me because getting these documents are the only thing standing between me and a job and getting off the streets. I have all the experience necessary with different jobs and am very charismatic. Once I am employed, I'll be able to afford rent for myself.

Thank you for helping Corey fund this need.

I have known Corey for 3 weeks now. He is very motivated and has accomplished all the immediate goals we have set for him. He is starting job training at Inspiration Corporation this month. He is so close to getting all his necessary documents for both employment and housing. Corey is very honest and a hard worker who deserves a second chance!
