Tessa from Chicago, IL

Bedbugs forced me to throw away everything. I need furniture for my home & health!

My goal is to complete my training at The Cara Program and to be successful in the foodservice industry. Furniture will enable me to thrive!


I am a 58 year-old woman currently enrolled in The Cara Program looking for employment in food service.

My goals are to complete The Cara Program and to be successful in the foodservice industry. I have 5 years of experience already!

I need furniture for my living room. I had to throw all of my furniture away due to having bedbugs.

Meeting this need will help me because right now I have nothing to sit on and be comfortable when my family comes by to visit. I'm currently unemployed so this need would really help.

I have known Tessa for about three months now since she's currently enrolled in my program. Since she's been here, she has taken and embraced all the classes that we have to offer her and she's passed them all with no problems. I would say she's a rock star.
