John from Bronx, New York

I'm homeless & living w/ Cerebral Palsy. I need help to buy clothes for interviews.

I'm excited to work and ready to build a stable life for myself. I need help buying clothes for job interviews; I have tried resources but have not found suitable clothes so far.

My need and situation

I am a 22 year male who has Cerebral Palsy, but I won't let it stop me from obtaining the goal I'm setting out to achieve. I am currently living in a homeless shelter due to not having any family connection that are willing to help me.

My goal is to find suitable employment to be able to care for my self so I can have a self-sufficient life. My focus is to one day have my own apartment and to live own my own but first I need to obtain employment so I am able to save.

I need to purchase interviewing clothes. I have no professional attire to wear for job interviews. I am unable to purchase clothes for myself because I have no income and I am living in a homeless shelter. I was referred to places to receive clothing however most of their clothing were not suitable for me.

Meeting this need will help me because It will help continue self confidence. I will be able to have an income to provide for myself and I will be self sufficient to be able to save money to some day get stable housing.

John is client that I supervise on Probation. I have been working with John, assisting him with his employment goals. John reports regularly he is eager to work. I believe once John obtains employment he will move toward in a positive direction. The employment opportunity will allow him to be stable, refrain from getting in any trouble, and help him maintain future stable housing.
