Struggling Family Of 3, Soon To Be 4, Needs Help After Temporary Unemployment

My Story:

I am married to my beautiful wife and have an adorable 2 year old son. Right now, we are also expecting our second baby on February 2018. My wife works for a semiconductor company.

Last April my wife got laid off from her previous job. It took her 2 months to find a job, but she is working again. I only do house painting for a minimal price once in a blue moon. We live paycheck to paycheck and no savings at all.

We need Modest Needs's help to pay for our rent. Our landlord increased our rent last month. We are worried that we will be evicted. I don't want this to happen to my family especially with my pregnant wife.

This funding will be a big help to us and be able to keep up with the other bills too. I am still looking for a job and waiting for any responses from the ones I have applied to. I am also painting houses and taking any job I can. With your help and my wife's new job, I know we can make it. We appreciate any help you can offer from the bottom of our hearts.
