AA Mom Needs Help With Daycare

My Story:

Last week, my young daughter and I left my partner and moved into our own apartment. We had been together for 18 years. He and I are both alcoholics. However, I chose to join Alcoholics Anonymous 18 months ago, and I have been sober ever since. He chooses to keep drinking. We had to separate, so that my daughter and I can move on with our lives. On the plus side, we love our new apartment!

I have been fortunate to be able to take my daughter to work with me for the time being, and I have applied for acceptance to the subsidized daycare program in our area. However, it will be several weeks until the subsidy will begin. I need consistent daycare services for my daughter in order to continue working.

With this grant from Modest Needs, I will be able to pay for several weeks of daycare. This will cover the period until we obtain the help that we need from our local social service agency. Thanks for considering this request, and have a beautiful day!

As of 2008-07-03, 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 2008-07-03, Modest Needs sent payment via Check in the amount of $600.00 to Briar Patch Corner on behalf of this deserving individual.
