DeAnn from Tucson, Arizona

Studying therapy in college-- I need funds for pens/paper & Wi-Fi while in school!

I'm a cancer survivor engaged in my community. I want a degree in Behavioral Therapy. Funds for internet & supplies will keep me in budget for school!


I am a 68-year-old retired African American cancer survivor who is returning to school for my Bachelors Degree as a Dialectic Behavioral Health Therapist. I am currently a facilitator for two community workshops called Getting Ahead and The Mama Project.

My goals are to get my degree, further update my education and become a community leader. I want to promote healthy life styles, educational opportunities and resources for those in need.

My need is to get enough funding to cover my Wi-Fi payments and help with ink and paper supplies while I am going to school. I have my own computer, printer/ scanner and fax/ copier at home that I use for school work.

Meeting this need will help me because it will allow me to remain inside my fixed income budget and allow me to handle my responsibilities such as bills and food.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping DeAnn fund this need.

Validated by Donna from Pima County One Stop Career Center (What does this mean?)

DeAnn came into the One Stop to attend a workshop whose focus was to empower individuals in their community. She completed the workshop, received training and became a certified facilitator for two workshops Getting Ahead and The Mama Project. She is now attending Pima Community College to obtain her Associates Degree and plans to transfer to the University of Arizona for her Bachelors. She is extremely motivated and determined to finish her schooling. The Wi-Fi costs would allow her to save her money for six months until she is more financially stable.
