I am seeking a part time work in order to supplement my full time employment. I feel blessed and will not forget this kind gesture. I do hope one day to be a donor so that I can help someone as Modestneeds has helped me. May God continue to bless you and your wonderful kind deeds. Sincerely, Kathy Lucas

So Close to Self-Sufficient; One Time Rent Help

My Story:

She is a single woman living in Americus, Georgia. She has recently obtained a new job, quite a feat in this down economy. But the hours she was given this month are not full-time hours, and so her income will not quite be enough to pay the cost of her rent.

In the future, her income and hours will be such that she can afford all of her expenses on her own. It's only due to the lack of assigned hours this month that she is unable to afford her rent cost.

Under the Modest Needs New Employment Grant, established to help those with bridging gaps between pay days, she is seeking one-time assistance with rent.

Her inability to pay leaves her stressed and scared that she might lose her home. She has canceled her cable television service and is actively looking for a second job to make ends meet. In the meantime, however, she is facing eviction.

You can invest in the life of this individual who is facing homelessness through no fault of her own by 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 needed, we'll rush a check to her landlord in the full amount owed. And afterward, you'll get a thank you note, written in her own words, expressing just how much your 'small change' changed her life for the better.

Thank you for your support.

As of 2011-10-31, this application has been fully funded!

Application Status Update: On 2011-11-01, Modest Needs sent payment via Check in the amount of $412.50 to KirkLand Properties on behalf of this deserving individual.
