1. Mama - to get a house & have the family together. Works out in the end.
2. Beneatha - to become a doctor. She ends up going to Africa with Joseph Asagai to be a doctor there.
3. Walter - to start a liquor store with Willy and Bobo & to be the man of the house (he thinks that a man is measured by his money). Mama gives Walter money, so he becomes his definition of the man of the house, but Willy runs away with the money, and he can't open the liquor store.
4. Ruth - for her marriage with Walter to be healthy again. Works out when Walter miraculously matures, stands up to the white guy, and the family plans to move into Clybourne park together. Ruth and Mama are both happy with him and they walk happily out of their old living room to a new life.
