This person has left the following thank you note:
I want to say thank you for all your help. I really cannot put into words how much you helped me and how much getting this help really means to me. I am now ensured to have a roof over my head for the foreseeable future. I have been able to catch up on a number of bills that were behind. I was also able to invest in my new small business, making a stable financial future much more feasible. Again, a deep and most heartfelt thank you to all who found the room in their hearts to help me.
I'm a Disabled Veteran and Need Help with Rent While Awaiting Benefits
I am a 35-year-old disabled veteran living alone with my emotional support animals. I'm divorced with no children. Due to degenerative disc disease, severe knee pain and degradation, and psychological issues (including Major Depressive Disorder, severe anxiety, and PTSD) I am currently unable to work in a normal setting. I am currently awaiting approval of my Social Security Disability. While I'm waiting, I'm barely making it on very little money.
If Modest Needs can help with my rent for October, it would provide the best opportunity for me to recover financially. I'm afraid that if I cannot pay this bill I will wind up as another homeless veteran living out of my car and having to give up my emotional support animals; they are the only reason I often do not slip into a deep depression. I often feel like a failure because I am not able to pay bills others can pay easily, furthering my feelings of depression.
By helping with my rent, you will allow me to catch up on all of my past due bills, pay to get my vehicle registration renewed, and start eating healthier and regularly again. It will mean no longer having to worry about being evicted and becoming just another statistic as a homeless veteran. Getting help from people who do not know me will mean more to me than I can ever put into words. My situation will greatly improve in the near future, and this isn't something I will take lightly or forget. I want to take the opportunity I am given, go forward, and make a difference in the lives of others who need help.
