Maternity Leave Without Pay: Need Rent Help

My Story:

I am a single parent with two growing boys. I have a 8 week old and a 16 year old. My 16 year old is in the 10th grade and loves Math and Science. My 8 week old was unexpected but such a blessing. I work both a full-time and 2 part-time jobs.

I am currently on maternity leave without pay. I was taken off the payroll two weeks after I had my son. I have had no income to come in since August 31st. I have applied for several assistance programs but according to them I make to much money. I will not receive another paycheck until November 1st. We need Modest Needs help with our rental payment.

This funding will help us keep a roof over our head and restore my sense of comfort and stability. I have had to cut my maternity leave short by 4 week just to get back on the payroll. Any type of assistance will be greatly appreciated.
