Homelessness means a person lacks a consistent, adequate night-time residence. On a single night in the United States, an estimated 184,600 people in families including children experienced homelessness; 369,000 single individuals experienced homelessness; and 86,950 single individuals with a disabling condition experienced chronic homelessness.
Illinois State Board of Education reported that public schools identified 54,607 homeless students during the 2016-2017 school year, an annual increase of 1.6 percent or 874 students.
In Chicago alone, we have so many vacant buildings that can be remodeled and used to help young women and single moms transition into a life where they will be prosperous. Prosperity Transitional Living will purchase and renovate vacant apartment building for use as permanent housing. Not only will this help get so many people off of the streets, but it will limit the need for public assistance once they have the proper techniques to survive.
At Prosperity Transitional Living, we will have each individual go through the "Women Preparing for Elevation Program" that will provide them with the tools they need to parent effectively, become financially stable and responsible, and be able to successfully find a career that they love. Through various classes and training, each individual will be able to accomplish their goals. There will be three phases of the program that each individual will have to successfully pass.
What we need from you? I need your help to make this happen. I need to hire staff to hit the streets and get the grants to come in, office space for classrooms and to do the work we need to do. Imagine you, your family and kids in a shelter or on the street. Sometimes all people need is a helping hand to succeed and pass their success forward. Please hit that DONATE, DONATE, DONATE!!!!!! Thank you in advance.
