Helen from Detroit, Mi

I'm starting a new chapter with almost nothing. A bed will help me stay focused.

I lost almost everything in a divorce. Now I am starting over and plan to study to be a nurse. With help I can sleep well as I start my new life.


I am a mother of 5 children and recently divorced. I lost almost everything in my divorce. I’m starting over with my children. This is our new beginning.

My goals are finish college and start working as a nurse. My twins have nonverbal autism; I want to learn how to finally care for them.

My need is for a bed and linens. As someone with almost nothing, a basic place to sleep with help me stay healthy and focused on what comes next.

Meeting this need will help me because my income is limited and I’m unable to work a full time job.
