Stranded by Roommate: Help Her Get to New Apartment

My Story:

She is a single woman in Duluth, Georgia who battles epilepsy. Her income is such that there is no money left for emergencies, so when her roommate vacated the residence without paying her share of the rent, this Georgia woman was left to pay the entire amount.

She was able to find a small apartment that she can afford by herself, but she must move into the property September 1st to claim the unit. The only thing she needs help with is the cost of the move.

This Georgia lady tells Modest Needs, 'This is a totally unexpected expense, I had no warning that I would have to move...I'm not going to give up or feel sorry for myself. I have learned from having epilepsy that you grow stronger from your trials.'

The apartment she found is very close to her school, which she is attending to get a degree in Health Science Information. She will have a work study program that will increase her income by $100.00 more per week. She just needs a hand getting into a place she can afford.

If this sound like a good investment to you, then please considering making a contribution to Modest Needs and using your points to vote that we fund this request. Once this application has 100% of the points it needs, we'll immediately remit payment for the cost of the movers. And afterward, you'll get a thank you note, written in her own words, expressing how far your 'small change' went toward changing her life for the better.

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