David from Brooklyn, NY

New clothes for interviews will make it easier to find a job and stabilize my life.

I've been living in shelters and it's been hard to find work. New clothes to attend interviews will make all the difference!


I am a 21 year old young man who has recently lost his mother. I am on my own and homeless. I currently reside at a Men's Shelter. I was diagnosed with severe depression, and I would like to start rebuilding my life.

My goals are to leave the Men's Shelter, and go into an independent living program, where I can live on my own. I am currently going on job interviews to find work, and hopefully one day go back to school. I want to live a regular life like any normal 21 year old.

I need clothes so that I can be better prepared to go on these interviews, and make a good impression. I want to be able to go in any interview and not feel ashamed or embarrassed because I don't have the proper clothing.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be one step closer to rebuilding my life. Working, having a place to live, and attending school are normal for many, but I do not have that. I just want a chance to feel confident and look presentable as I work towards looking for a job to provide for myself.

David came to me on probation as a lost and angry homeless young man with no family. In the last few months I have seen a significant change in his persistence and dedication to improving himself. I am seeing a young man who wants more and is doing his best.
