Darnell from Chicago, IL

Recently housed! I need basic household items to get started in this new life phase.

It's been a long road. I'm now housed, in school & working to further my self-sufficiency. Household items like towels & blankets will help me thrive!


I am a 38 year old male who just recently found housing. I am currently a student at NEIU and looking forward to having my own place.

My goals are to graduate from school, obtain a job, and become self-sufficient. I know I will be successful as I now have a roof over my head.

I need assistance with purchasing household items for my new apartment. It's been a long road and I am so excited to get started in this new phase of life.

Meeting this need will help me because having the household essentials like towels and blankets will make my new apartment a home: a place where I can study from and achieve my goals.

I have been working with Darnell since I completed outreach with him on the trains. Since that time he has made great strides, moving into a shelter, staying safe, enrolling in school, and so much more! Finally, he has been able to find a place to live all his own, which I can't wait to see get set up and be the safe haven that every home should be!
