Hospital Stay + Auto Accident Shouldn't Mean Eviction

My Story:

This Garner, North Carolina mother to two sons was dealt two recent blows: an emergency trip to the hospital for gallbladder removal and an auto accident. Combined, these crises put her behind on rent and on the brink of eviction.

But sickness and an accident shouldn't be the reason this woman and her sons face homelessness. This applicant works full-time, can normally take care of all of her expenses and lives independently; it's just these mishaps that have caused her to fear eviction.

She is asking for one-time assistance under the Self-Sufficiency Grant so that she can get back on her feet after life threw her two nasty punches. Without help, she could be put on the streets. With help, she can continue to be with her sons and work and thrive and live a life of dignity.

You can make that happen when you contribute to Modest Needs and use your points to vote that we fund this application. And you'll get a 'thank you' note expressing, in her own words, the power of your small change to change a life.

Thank you for considering this request and for your continued support of Modest Needs.

As of 2011-09-13, this application has been fully funded!

This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.

Application Status Update: On 2011-09-22, Modest Needs sent payment via Check in the amount of $900.00 to JR Britt, Landlord on behalf of this deserving individual.
