Rental Assistance for Recently Moved Single Mother/Domestic Violence Victim
I am a single mother of three children who are 7, 10, and 14. I earn just enough to cover my household expenses, and recently had to pay a large security deposit in order to move into safe housing with my children. This took away from my ability to pay my first month's rent and that is why I am turning to Modest Needs for assistance. I was stuck in an abusive relationship with the father of my children, and recently had the strength to remove us form the situation. He currently does not know where we are, and I really would like to keep it this way.
I am afraid that if I cannot afford this month of rent, we will lose the home that I tried so hard to find. If I am evicted, the security deposit will disappear, and we might end up homeless. I currently work two jobs in order to make ends meet, and exhausted my resources in the process of moving residences and paying the deposit. I am working hard to improve my income, and just had a promising interview last week!
If I receive help to pay my rent, I will be able to make it though this month, and then my income would be sufficient to carry us forwards. I am hoping that I will be able to find a better job in the future, but without your help the possibilities seem bleak. This help would really mean the world to my kids and I. Thank you!
