Frankie from New York, NY

Working towards independence. 1st month's rent will allow me to reach stability.

My goals are to become financially independent and complete my GED. My first month's rent will allow me to finish my internship and find work.


Frankie has started an internship with AmeriCorps Mar 15, 2016

WONDERFUL news! Frankie has just accepted a position with AmeriCorps as a paid intern. He'll be working with them to serve his community while building professional skills and earning money as he prepares to live on his own.


I am a 19-year-old male living on Staten Island. I have enrolled in the Young Adult Success Corps program. This program will help me complete my GED and become ready for a job. I am currently on probation. I am trying to better my life by becoming an independent adult.

My long-term goal is to eventually become an New York City Police Officer.

I am driven to become independent. My first month's rent will help me on my path toward independence as I complete the YASC program and gain skills that will help me find work.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to live independently and become a responsible individual.

I am a NYC probation officer and is currently supervising Mr. Heath on probation. I have known him for the past 2 months. I found Mr. Health to be cooperative and compliant with all of my requirements. Since coming on probation, he has grown immensely and has showed willingness to turn his life around.
