Jesus from Chicago, IL

Overcoming homelessness & training for a new career. Need work gear to get a job.

I'm on the path to finding stable housing. Steel-toed boots and bus cards for transportation will enable me to start work!


I am presently homeless and living in a shelter. I am also a student at JARC in the CNC training program.

My goals are to complete the program at JARC, secure a job, and find a place to live. I am hoping to rent my own apartment.

I need steel-toed boots and bus cards for transportation in order to find work.

Meeting this need will allow me to get a job with the opportunity to live on my own and enjoy life like everyone else. Maybe something as simple as fishing.

Thank you for helping Jesus fund this need.

I am Jesus' CNC Program Coordinator and have known him for 4 months. His happy go lucky attitude is contagious and makes him a joy to work with! I couldn't be more excited to see Jesus find employment and soon be able to support himself again. He has put in extra hard work from day 1, propelling him quickly through the curriculum. I know this effort will pay off for Jesus when the right employer comes along!
