Lost A Client At Work, Need Assistance

My Story:

I am a single mother of one amazing daughter. She is currently attending the University of California, Riverside and majoring in psychology. She has always excelled in her school work, and is determined to get the most out of life. I work full-time as a caregiver for both my blind brother and disabled sister.

I earn enough to pay for the basic expenses every month, but I tend to live paycheck to paycheck. When my daughter started college, it was a very big investment, but I didn't want to deprive her of a great educational opportunity. Shortly after, I lost one client, putting me in a real bind. Then, around the same time, my only car had broken down and I was unable to get around and do the basic things I needed to do, including work. I need Modest Needs' help to pay my rent my car payment and insurance. I am worried that I could eventually lose my car and wouldn't be able to keep my daughter in school if I do not catch up.

This funding will help me get back on track with my rent, and make me feel secure again. I have been lucky enough to pay my bills until now, but I fear if I continue like this, I will be set further back in debt. Your help would make a big impact on my family, and it would certainly help my daughter continue pursuing her dream in becoming a forensic psychologist. It truly is a beautiful thing to see us gather as a community and help others in need. My family will certainly take this to heart, and will inspire us to give back to the community whenever possible.
