Recently Separated Mother Forced To Sell Home, Please Help With Gas Bill

The Details:

I am a recently separated mother of one amazing daughter. I work full time for a non-profit doing database administration.

Because of my separation, I've incurred several expenses that I hadn't planned on. I was forced to sell my home, at a loss, and I am now struggling to pay the final bills on all the home's utilities. I was the sole income earner in my home for the past 5 years, so I started 'budget billing' with the gas company less than a year ago. Because of that budget billing cycle and the timing of the sale of my house, I had a large debt on my gas account based on usage. I'm asking for Modest Needs' assistance in paying my gas bill. I just paid rent on top of the shortage on the sale of my house, moving costs, and my regular monthly bills, I am coming up short.

This funding would help me keep my budget in line. It was an unanticipated expense and having it covered would truly make the difference between having to incur more credit card debt, or being able to make it through the month semi-comfortably. I would be so grateful to receive this help during my unexpected transition. Thank you.
