Matthew from Chicago, IL

I'm ready to work in manufacturing. Reinstating my license will be the first step!

I need safety gear to find work, and my license to commute there. This will set me up for financial stability going forward.

My need and situation

I am an intelligent, highly motivated person who has made mistakes in life, but I refused to allow my mistakes to define me.

I want to be a productive member of society by building a career in manufacturing and be financially stable.

I need to pay my reinstatement fees and fines to get my licenses. This will allow me to commute to and from work. Also in order to apply for jobs, I need required safety gear. This includes steel toed boots and work uniforms.

Meeting this need and with my hard work will put me in a position to take care of myself financially. Also it will enable me continue being a productive and contributing member of society.
