I would like to thank each individual that chose to help and Modest Needs Organization. I was still struggling and faced with staying on top of my finances with the set backs I have been up against. I am so humble and appreciate everything. I was just panicking because I got a new job and my previous job kept my last check I depended on. This is truly a blessing and I thank you. Thank you Thank you.

Single Mother Needs Rental Help After Major Car Repairs

My Story:

I am a single mother to a wonderful son. He will be six years old this August and is going to 1st grade. I work full-time at PNC Bank as a Loan Support Associate. My son enjoys basketball and animals, he loves Steph Curry and the zoo. I attended college and received my bachelors here in Pennsylvania at Edinboro University. We our originally from Buffalo NY and just resided here in the Pittsburgh area a few months ago.

I am the sole provider working paycheck to paycheck here in a city with no family. The savings have been diminishing since the challenges I have faced since moving here in December. I recently had a car break down in which I had to pay for out of pocket for a transmission and caused a financial set back. I need Modest Needs' help to pay my rent that I am currently behind. I am worried that me and my son will be evicted and I have just relocated to a place with no family, to better our opportunities. I do not want to lose my home.

This funding will help bring my household current and take a lot of stress off me to maintain stability for me and my child. Modest Needs' help would change my life for the better and give me a confidence and impact that I can gain in order to help someone that will be faced with difficult situations like myself.
