Expecting Mother and Combact Veteran Needs Rent Help

My Story:

I am a 28 year old combat veteran. I served in the Army for seven years and medically retired in May 2015 after my deployment from Afghanistan. I have been working my mental and physical health with the support of my husband and kids since then. My husband is the most supportive man ever. He has been at his current position for about two months and we are trying to get on our feet since we are expecting a baby girl in August. We two boys ages 6 and 4. They are obsessed with wrestling and dinosaurs. We are a family that does not have much but our spirituality and close relationships has kept us strong and together.

We both together earn enough to pay for basic expenses but we tend to live pay check to pay check. It has been a struggle trying to keep up lately since we had an A/C repair done on our car, and to top it off this morning we woke to our joint account with 1000 missing because the VA decided to take an debt that I did not know would be taken. I thought I had set up a payment plan and was unaware this would occur. We have NO emergency funding and now will have to decide on how to pay bills with this unexpected debt. This was a major setback. We need Modest Needs' help to pay our rent.

I am afraid of eviction at 7 months pregnant and I am already dealing with so much stress and health issues. This funding will give us a peace of mind. It will also make our bills current and help us make it until this money is replaced. The help will really impact our family in a positive way and my husband and I will have less stress on our marriage.

As of 2017-09-29, this application has been fully funded!
