Why I'm using HandUp for basic needs.

I am fundraising for a laptop and bus pass so that I can go back to school at SF Community College the Fall of 2017. I want to better my education and do something that I love doing. I want to get my license to be a counselor at a group home, so that they don't have to go down the path that I went.

** NOTE TO DONORS: We value your donations, and respect your intention to support people in need with their specific fundraising goals. On occasion, the immediate needs or an emergency may arise, and a Participant might require support in another way for safety, health, housing, or employment. As such, your donation may be used for an immediate basic need not mentioned in the above goal, such as groceries, health costs, or housing support. Any changes will always be approved in advance by PHC Staff. We will provide up to date information on how these funds are being used through an update on HandUp. By making a donation to this campaign, you are confirming your approval of this potential change. If you have any questions, or do not wish that your donation be used for any alternative goals, please contact PHC staff directly.

We greatly appreciate your support to our Participants!

About me.

I was born in Orlando, Florida. I've lived in San Francisco for a year and a half. I used to be a drug addict, but I've now been sober for over two years now.

My backstory.

I became homeless because I was doing drugs. I grew up in a group home, I have been system-raised for the majority of my life. I didn't have much of a childhood and I experienced a lot of trauma as a child; I am seeking mental health treatment to help work through that trauma. Now, I am sober and piecing my life back together.

My goals, moving forward.

My goal is to go back to school, maintain a career, and have my own apartment.

Other things I'd like to share about myself.

With your help, my happiest moment would be getting this laptop and transportation assistance so that I can go back to school and pursue my educational and career goals.
