Star from Chicago, IL

I'm so excited to move into an apartment! I need pots, dishes, and bedding.

I escaped a domestic violence situation that left me homeless. Now I'm moving into an apartment! I need housewares as I start over.


I am 29 years old and am moving into an apartment after a year of homelessness. I was living on the streets and then in a shelter due to a domestic violence situation.

I've been working with Inspiration Corporation's Employment Program since 2009 and am striving towards gaining independence and self sufficiency. A major goal I am working towards is entering the field of law.

I am excited to move into an apartment which I just secured but need dishware and housewares to settle in. Pots, pans and dishes will allow me to cook for myself and be self-reliant. Bedding and personal items will help me be rested and prepared for my career pursuits.

Meeting this need will allow me to feel that I am moving forward and have a sense of self-reliance and stability. This move is providing me with a new and healthy outlook on life and the motivation and push to keep moving forward.

Validated by Shayna from Inspiration Corporation (What does this mean?)

I know Star through her involvement with the employment project here at Inspiration Corporation. She has recently gained housing and it is very exciting to see the opportunity and stability it will bring for Star as she transitions to this new stage in life. It would be wonderful to see Star receive the assistance needed to fully settle in.
