Kevin from Brooklyn, NY

I'm working hard to provide for my son. I need a new bed, I have trouble sleeping!

My 2yo son is the light of my life; I want to provide for him. A new bed will help me stay focused, and let me sleep next to him at night.


I am 24 year old hard working individual with financial hardships. I currently am employed however I am struggling to provide for myself and my two year old son.

My goals are to be able to be the best father that I can be. It's my hopes that I can obtain gainful employment that will allow me the opportunity to better me and son's life finically.

I am requesting assistance with a bedroom set for myself. I am currently sleeping on an air mattress that won't allow me to obtain comfortable sleep as I work many long hours. My bed is too small so it doesn't allow me to be able to visit overnight with my son.

Meeting this need will help me because my son is my light, my heart and my world. Being able to spend time with him means the world to me and having the proper bedding will allow that. It will also allow me to obtain the best sleep so I can get up after a good rest at 4am and go to work so that I can provide for us.

Validated by Christina from NYC Department of Probation (What does this mean?)

I have been working with Kevin for three years. he's very respectful, hard working and caring individual. HIs Son means the work to him and he lights up when he talks about him. If I had anyone to chose to validate a need for it would be him.
