Unexpected Bill Tripled And Set Me Back on Rent!

My Story:

I am a single mother of two boys who are 9 and 6. I work in a hospital as a billing specialist and solely support my boys and take care of my household. I recently had an issue with my car insurance. This is because my normal bill increased disproportionately and my policy was canceled. As a result I paid for a new one, and did not receive my monthly payment back from the original, as they claimed that it was already earned premium. The copay for the new policy really set me back, and I was unable to pay my rent on time. I am now behind, and have no way to come up with the necessary amount.

I am turning to Modest Needs to help me afford one month of rent. I am a hard worker and can normally make ends meet just fine. Although my landlord is giving me a little bit of time, my paychecks will not cover this expense alongside my monthly expenses necessary to take care of my children. I had no choice but to spend money on my insurance, as my vehicle is how I get to work, and essential to my ability to support my family.

This assistance will give me a chance to get back on track with everything and I am hoping that in the future I am able to find a position that allows my finances to be more flexible. I truly believe in helping anyone I can and my boys and I would really appreciate any assistance available. Thank you so much.
