Homeless and seeking employment; I need a PO Box so I can get civil documents

I'm a homeless father. As I search for work to support my son, I need a permanent place to get mail; I sleep in different locations each day.

My need and situation

I am a 22 year old father of one. I am currently homeless and seeking stable accommodation.

I would like to obtain employment so that I can become stable for my son but I keep losing my civil documents as I sleep at different location from night to night.

I need $230 for a PO Box so that I can keep my civil documents safe and receive mails there.

Meeting this need will help me because I will have a safe place to keep my civil documents so that when an employment opportunities comes up I have my documents. Also, I currently have no place to send my mails.

I have been working with Jacob since May 2019. Jacob wants to do better in life but has had many hurdles to overcome. He is currently homeless but continues to seek employment. His homelessness has cause him to misplace his civil documents and this has even affected his job search. I believe a PO box would help him keep his documents safe. He also needs someplace to receive mails.
