Help me purchase a washer/dryer so I can have more time to study!

I need help purchasing a washer/dryer. Having this in my apartment will allow me to focus on studying and working since I won't have to spend so much time traveling to and from the laundromat doing laundry for me and my three children.


I’m motivated and determined to complete my education (high school diploma) as well as search for employment. I live in Chicago and I am a mom of three kids in Elementary and Middle School. Since 2013 I have successfully maintained housing through a housing program.

My goal is to increase my income and get my High School Diploma. I have experience working as a Home Health Aide and would like to continue working in that field. I am currently looking for jobs and looking into GED programs. I’m interested in going to college to get my business degree and eventually opening a catering or cleaning business.

I am looking to get a washer and dryer for my unit, as it has the washer/dryer hook up, I just cannot afford to buy the machines. I have three kids and I do not have a car so getting to and from the laundromat is very difficult. Having the washer and dryer in unit would be very helpful in saving time and energy that I could then put towards my GED or work.

If I am able to do my laundry at home, I will have more time to work on getting my GED and applying for work. I currently spend a lot of time travelling to and from the laundromat to do laundry for my family.

Inspiration Corporation has been working with this individual since 2013. She has been a wonderful participant in our housing program, continuing to work on her education, employment, housing and health goals. I have been working with Arreis for a few months and have enjoyed working with her very much. She is eccentric and full of personality. Arreis loves animals and has a dog, cat, and birds that she is very proud of. Arreis is proud to call herself a mom and a participant of Inspiration Corporation’s housing program. Every time we talk, Arreis discusses her employment and educational goals and provides me updates on the steps she has taken that week to achieve them. Therefore, I know a washer/dryer would help her be able to devote more time to achieving her goals.
