Mya from New York, New York

I need funds to buy a birth certificate copy and get a state ID so I can find work!

I was raised in foster care & now I'm finding I can't get work without an ID. I need funds for my birth certificate & a NY State ID to move forward.


I am a 20 year old female who was raised in foster care from the ages of 16 -18 after being discharged from foster care. I am the youngest of 11 children. I am trying to re establish my life and have very few support systems outside of the Department of Probation.

My goals are to get my education and build a company that will help the homeless because when I was homeless I wish I had the help.

I need financial assistance to help me obtain by birth certificate to get my NYS ID so that I can get a job.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to look for employment and get my High School Equivalency diploma.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Mya fund this need.
