Jeff from Detroit, Michigan

Working to escape homelessness; my daughter and I need basic furniture.

I'm a disabled veteran and dedicated father. I deal with back pain; with a sofa and bed we can stay healthy and feel at home in our new apartment.


I am a disabled veteran in need of a future, and a single father raising my daughter. Due to my disability I am unable to work due to my severe back pain.

My goals are to open up a business one day, but for now I am focused on finding stability for me and my daughter.

I need a bed and a sofa for my daughter and I. After losing everything we had, and with my back as it is, furniture would help us stay healthy and feel like our apartment is a home again.

Meeting this need will help me because I lost everything when I lost my house due to my inability to work. My daughter and I lived in a shelter for 6 months until I moved into an apartment this month. This furniture will help us re-establish a sense of home.

Jeff is on my caseload and just got an apartment after losing everything. He is a great father working hard to raise his daughter. It would be terrific if they could get this furniture.
