Why I'm using HandUp for household items.

I am using HandUp for a dresser because I don't have a place to put my clothes. They are currently piled on a wire rack in my bedroom and constantly are falling off and on to the floor, leaving quite a mess to keep up with.

My backstory.

In 2012 I was living in Oxford, MI. I was self employed as a transcriber for the Federal News service. My car died at that time so I depended on my bicycle for daily transportation. I was struck by a vehicle one day, causing a concussion, neck injuries, and a knee injury. I have been unable to work since then. This contributed to my homelessness, but now I have secured housing through South Oakland Shelter and I am able to live independently.

My goals, moving forward.

I'm currently participating in physical therapy in hopes of being able to return to work. I am so happy in my new home and I am hoping to save enough money to purchase furniture.
