Dwayne from Chicago, IL

I'm looking for work. A bed will help me get the sleep I need to move forward!

I'm on the other side of 10 years of homelessness! I'm eager to find a job and know that I need to be rested to do so! I need a bed!


I was homeless and sleeping on the streets for over ten years. I was recently housed through a social service agency and am now ready to start working on my goals!

My goals are to obtain stable housing and obtain employment.

I need a bed to sleep on because I am currently sleeping on the floor.

Meeting this need will help me because I currently do not have an income and am unable to afford a bed. This will help me move forward by maintaining a good night sleep so I can awake in the morning refreshed and ready to look for work.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Dwayne fund this need.

Dwayne has been a registered guest at the EDSSC and receiving services since 2009. Dwayne has recently gone from homeless to housed. He was able to obtain some household items, but is still in need of a bed. It would be wonderful to see Dwayne receive this help so he can continue his path to self-sufficiency.
