Marialys from Queens, NY

Single mother of two; need a sofa bed so I can sleep well & provide for my children

We live with my mother & sleep on an air mattress. A sofa bed would provide me with quality sleep to get up each morning and work hard!


I am a 22 year old, mother of two children who has been trying to work hard for my children. I currently re-side with my mother, however there is no space for me in the home. My brother and his children sleep in one room. My children sleep with my mother in the other room. I currently sleep on an air mattress in the living room. I wake up everyday to strive for my self and my children.

My goals are to obtain a job where I can continue to help support my children and obtain my GED.

I need a sofa bed, where I can open the couch and turn it into a bed a night, so that I can sleep comfortably and wake up to provide for my children. I am not sleeping well on the air mattress.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to obtain sleep. I will be able to leave my home on a daily basis with less stress and focus on my children's needs and my future.
