Nicole from Chicago, IL

I'm SO close to graduating and finding full employment, but I need a laptop to do it!

I need a laptop to help me finish school. I just need 18 more credit hours to graduate, and a laptop will help me get there!


I am a 32 year old Digital Literacy Instructor. I've been teaching for 5 months. I went through the Cara program to help me gain quality employment, and to get a better understanding of my professional work history.

My goals are to gain permanent employment, housing and finish school. I am eligible for housing, but due to the freeze in state funding, I have had to utilize other resources.

I need a laptop to help me finish school. I am short 18 credit hours on my degree, and a laptop will help me get there.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to have access to my work all the time, and not have to rely on going to the library, or community centers.

Thank you for helping Nicole fund this need.
