Banneker from Detroit, MI

Took in my grandson who's in 2nd grade. We need basic furniture.

My grandson means the world to me and I'm raising him now that his parents cannot. I need help making my home suitable for his needs and development.


I am a single grandmother who took on the responsibility of raising my grandson. His biological parents are not in his life. I receive limited finances and no additional financial support to provide for his needs. Whatever he needs comes out of the limited finances that I receive for myself. We currently live in low income housing complex. He is in the 2nd grade.

My goal is to provide a comfortable home for him to live in. It is my plan to provide a suitable living area that will help him feel comfortable and give him a family environment.

I need living furniture for my home. Currently we are not able to sit down as a family together unless we are in one of our bedrooms. My grandson is need of this nurturing and having a sense of a family environment.

Having this need met will give us a comfortable home and to be able to sit down as a family. It will alleviate some stress off of me and I can focus on parenting him, emotionally supporting him and continue to be self-sufficient in providing a home and stability for my grandson.
