User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI want to send all of you a sincere letter of appreciation you have no idea how it feels to know there are people with heart that will go to such lengths to reach out and give you the assistance and compassion. This will allow me to be able to rest at night knowing I won't have to stress so much and get a second chance. It allows me to continue to fight for the justice my babies deserve. God made good people and blessed me with them whether they are strangers or not. A movie comes to mind 'pay it forward' and believe me I know I will be doing just that. Again thank you seems to little of a word to express how thankful I am.

Rent Help: Help Mother Protect Her Kids

My Story:

She is a single mother in Fallon, Nevada who is raising three boys, ages 12, 6 and 4 all on her own. She is in the process of divorce that is bringing with it enormous emotional and financial stress, but she is doing what she has to do to protect her sons from a life of drugs. Her health insurance was canceled in the divorce, which has left her with a whole new set of unexpected bills.

She is seeking assistance under the Self-Sufficiency Grant, for individuals who can normally take care of all monthly expenses, with her rent. This one-time assistance would allow her to get caught up on expenses related to the divorce.

This mom tells Modest Needs, 'I am afraid i will fail at supporting my children and their expectations...They rely on me to ensure that they are taken care of but without help I am unable to do so...I plan to be able to get this paid and be able to help myself so that I can afford it once I get the support those boys need.'

If you'd like to invest in the wellbeing of this family of four, then please consider making a donation to Modest Needs and using your points to vote that we fund this request. Once this application has 100% of the points it needs, then we will immediately remit payment to her landlord for the amount of rent owed. And afterward you'll get a thank you note, written in her own words, expressing exactly how much your 'small change' changed their lives.

Thank you for considering this application and for your ongoing support of Modest Needs.

As of 2011-10-10, this application has been fully funded!
