Veronique from Chicago, IL

I've found housing! Need basic furniture to make my new apartment a stable home base.

I had been living in a shelter since November, but now have my own place! Furniture will give me a healthy living space to work and relax in.


I have been homeless since November in a shelter. I came to the Center for Changing Lives to work with a financial coach on securing stable house. I am now happy to say that I have found a home, and will be moving in shortly!

My goals are now that I am housed, I would like to start my own business. And once I have more income coming in I can buy a house so that my grandchildren can live with me.

I need furniture for my house, so that at the end of the day I have a space to work and relax in.

Meeting this need will help me because I will have the space that I need to work, and will not have to worry about finding money for furniture and can put more effort into starting my business.
