Andre is the oldest of eight brothers and sisters, a father of four, and a grandfather! Originally from Indiana, Andre came to California to study music. Unfortunately he found himself in a challenging situation, now searching for work and affordable housing. Joining HandUp through our partner Project Homeless Connect, Andre started fundraising to cover his transportation costs to and from job interviews. With your support he met his goal in just two days, and then two weeks later secured a job with a local catering company!
Thank you generous donors for your support. I really needed these transportation funds to get to, and search for work in my field of employment. Please look for me to do greater things, as you have truly giving me hope to move forward. I have some other goals I will discuss with you in another update but for now please know and understand I am so grateful for this direction of hope. - Andre
