Aries from Chicago, IL

After 2 years homeless, I have my own place! Need basic furniture to make it a home.

I'm proud to say I now have my own apartment. But after a security deposit & 1st month's rent, I need funds to furnish it and make it a livable space.


I became homeless due to having to provide for my mother for 10 years who sadly passed away one year ago from alzheimer's. I exceeded all of my personal funding for her care. I've found employment through CARA and I'm happy to announce that I've secured my first apartment since being homeless.

My goals are to maintain employment and my apartment and grow within the company.

I am in desperate need of furniture because I have not worked in 10 years and I used my first few paychecks to pay a deposit and rent.

Furniture will help me become more self-sufficient at work and a place to relax, read and enjoy television.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Aries fund this need.

I've known Aries for about four months now she came into Cara with her mind made up that she's going to secure a job and become successful. She came and embraced all of the classes that we offered and passed them all with no problem. Aries is very deserving of this need, and I thank you in advance for her.
