Octavia from Chicago, IL

Need to give my 2 grandsons a stable home base. They need beds & linens to sleep on.

Meeting this need will mean my grandsons have a healthy place to sleep each night in their new home.


I am a grandma who recently gained custody of her two grandsons. Shortly thereafter, I was laid off from my job. We recently got approved for a two bedroom apartment after living in a one bedroom for several months.

My goals are to stabilize the lives of my grandsons and finish the final 140 hours of my Esthetics Instructor state license program.

I need to purchase bunk beds, mattresses, sheets, and pillows for my grandsons since we are moving into a new apartment.

Meeting this need will help me because it will allow my grandsons to have their owns bed in their own room and no longer have to sleep on air mattresses.

Octavia has been working with us at CCL for many months. She is motivated and ready to reach her goals. Her perseverance has helped her to attain her new apartment and getting beds for her grandsons would improve her and her family's life tremendously. Her positive energy radiates to anyone she comes into contact with and it would be amazing to see her move forward with the help of these funds.
