Andrew's Time to Shine

Andrew is a 19 year old average teenager who lives is Wakfield, MA. But like most teenagers Andrew doesn't have an average story.  Andrew has not had a stable homelife since he was 13 years old. Andrew is currently homeless.  He is living day by day on friends couches and never knows where he will be sleeping the next day.
Andrew is hardworking and works 40+ hours at Jiffy Lube and was recently promoted to crew chief.  He also has dreams of going to school some day.
Unfortunately, it is impossible these days to live on minimum wage.  Andrew saved enough money over the summer to buy a car but doesn't have the money to put it on the road.
Most of Andrew's money goes to eating out due to the fact that he has no place to keep any food.
Andrew doesn't qualify for any government funds because he does not have a disability or any children.
Andrew once told me he felt like his life fell apart before it was his time to shine.  I promised Andrew that I would help him have that time to shine but I need help.
We are currently looking for a room to rent for Andrew in the Wakefield area so he can get to work but even some of the rooms ask for first, last and security deposit. Also we need help to get his car on the road (register, excise tax, sales tax and insurance). I don't want to overburden him with another bill.
Please help me help Andrew .  If we can get him a room and his car on the road that would make a huge difference in his life.  Then maybe he can start thinking about going to school like everyother 19 year old in Wakefield.
Thank you in advance for your donations.
Love always,
Laurie
