During one of the most challenging times of my life I have found hope in the kindness and generosity of so many of you from every walk of life, taking time to contribute and share what you have to make my life a little less heavy on my mental and physical heart. I am truly amazed and so thankful that all of you have blessed my life with your contributions. My children and I are abundantly thankful. I am thankful and can look forward to another day. I will that in the near future through the kindness you have shown me I can do the same for another family or individual in need. Thank you from the top to the bottom of my heart.



Single Teacher of 2 Suffered a Stroke, Need Rental Assistance

The Details:

I am a single mom of two amazing boys whom are 7 and 12 years old. My 7 year old has special needs and enjoys playing dress up. My 12 year old is a typical energetic preteen. I enjoys listening to music and athletic sports. The kids favorite sport right now is hockey. I work full time as a lead preschool teacher at an amazing parent cooperative.

In mid April on the 18th, I suffered a stroke due to an unknown congenital heart defect, which left me unable to work. Up until that point I was an energetic mom whom was physically active and participated in many things. When I suffered the stroke it left me unable to work for several months and I received short term disability which put me in a financial bind. I became behind with bills especially my rent because I was relying only on 50% of my income. I need Modest Needs' assistance in paying for my rent because during the stroke I was focused on recovery and various doctors appointments.

This financial support will assist me and my family with homeless prevention and help bring this particular bill current. I am worried I could loose my apartment which is really stressful given my current heart condition. If I could just get a head and be back on track I know we could be ok. My 7 year old yesterday said Mommy we don't do anything fun any more. I am fortunate that I have been cleared to work full time as a preschool teacher with physical modification.
