Randy from Chicago, IL

Hoping to get a job in IT. I need bus passes to get to/from my training program.

My goals are to find a job in IT and secure stable housing. I need monthly public bus passes to get back and forth to my training classes.


I am a 43-year-old man. I graduated from college in 2006 from Robert Morris University, and have struggled to find a decent job in my field of information technology. I am currently in an A+ certification training program at the Center for Changing lives, hoping to obtain the certification in 16 weeks.

My goals are to gain employment in the information technology field. And hopefully, after I find a job, I will be able to get my own apartment. This would be the first time that I could have an apartment on my own.

I need monthly public transportation passes so I can get back and forth to the CompTIA A+ training classes.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to get to class every day. I will also be able to secure employment, find housing, and have a sense of independence.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Randy fund this need.

Validated by Peter from Center for Changing Lives (What does this mean?)

I have been working with Randy since August of 2016 on his employment goals. He has been extremely dedicated to class showing up on time every day, most days showing up early. He has also been very dedicated to his job hunt, taking advantage of all the job fairs that we know of, and consistently applying to jobs in the field he wants to work in. Getting this need funded will give Randy piece of mind that he will be able to finish the program because he won't have to worry about whether or not he can make it to class each day.
