Gerald needs assistance with a laptop

Partner: St. Joseph's Villa

Advisor: Drew Melson

Last year, Gerald lost his call center job after missing time from work due to injuries sustained in a car accident. He has since worked odd jobs and completed many employment applications to no avail. Eventually, he lost his home as well. Gerald attends physical therapy twice a week for one of his hands. His understanding is that he will not be able to do the physical work that he used to do. He is motivated to work and is open to returning to a call center job or remote employment. However, he does not have a home computer and completing job applications on his phone is difficult. Gerald would be grateful for assistance in purchasing a laptop so that he can get back to work and regain his independence.

She has been relying on friends and family to get back and forth. Her car needs a few things fixed before passing inspection.
