Ellis from Chicago, IL

One car repair will enable me to start a new career.

The driveshaft on my car must be replaced for me to continue on my new career path in IT.


My name is Ellis I am currently enrolled in the CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Program at Jane Addams Resource Corporation.

Upon completion of the training program I will begin a new career path in advanced manufacturing with higher wages.

The driveshaft on my car must be replaced for me to continue on my new career path. Having access to a car for transportation versus public transportation translates to access of higher paying jobs.

A commute of 2 hours (or more) one-way on public transportation vs. 45 minutes by car higher wages may be out of reach being reliant on public transportation. My daughter has regular mandatory medical appointments that now cost $80 per trip a car ride would cost a tiny fraction of that $80. My continued success and new life path is heavily reliant on my car getting repaired. Thank You for your consideration and generosity.

I have known Ellis for about 6 months now. I really cannot say enough about Ellis initiative, and drive while at JARC. I help him go thru the process of applying for public assistance at this moment he is the final stretch of training and it would be great to see him receive this financial assistance
