Tim from Detroit, Mi

I'm training for a new career. In the meantime, I need a stove to cook for my kids.

Without a stove, I'm often forced to rely on microwave meals and fast food to feed my children, which aren't healthy or affordable.


I am a single father of two children. We just moved into our first home after I gained permanent custody of them.

My goals are to complete an apprenticeship program to become an electrician. This opportunity will allow me to be able to take care of my children without any public assistance. My goal is to help out by becoming a mentor for teens .

I need a stove to feed my kids healthy meals. Without a stove, I have to buy them a lot of fast food and microwave meals, which aren't healthy.

Meeting this need will help me because my children will be able to eat a home-cooked meal once again.

Mr Tim was added to my case for learning parenting skills. Tim has great ambitions and is very goal-oriented and self-determined. He has showed great improvement in just 5 months. I look forward to seeing what's in store for him and his family.
