Aaron from Chicago, IL

Getting a home for the first time in 20 years. I need a bed to sleep on.

I'm excited to have my own place so I can be stable. I'm looking forward to being independent! A bed will help me get proper rest.

My need and situation

I am 52 years old and have been homeless 23 years. I am excited to have my own place so I can be stable and have my own roof over my head. I am looking forward to being independent.

My goals are to get a job and I want to go back to school and get my GED.

I need a bed so I can get proper rest.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to get proper rest to function and complete daily tasks.

Thank you for helping Aaron fund this need.

I have been working with Aaron for over a year now. I first met him while I was an intern at the EDSSC. I have now had the pleasure of working with him in my new role as Housing Coordinator. Aaron has been working hard to find housing and we are both so excited that he has the opportunity to move into his own place. Aaron has many goals like finding employment and obtaining his GED and the help from this need will help make all of that possible.
