Paying For A Divorce Has Put Mom and Four Kids In A Housing Crisis

My Story:

I am a single mother of four incredible young kids. My boys are 10 and 8 and are incredibly intelligent and active young men. They are kind and generous and have been through a lot lately. My daughters are 5 and 3. They are humorous and playful young women. They love princesses and creating stories. They have huge hearts and are quick to both laugh and cry. I am a middle school teacher of ten years. I teach English and gifted and talented students.

I earn enough to live paycheck to paycheck. Due to a recent divorce and lawyer and court fees, along with a relocation closer to work, the struggle has now become a crisis. We need Modest Needs' one-time assistance with rent. I would finally be able to get the rest of the bills on track and stop having this nightmare of a financial crisis steamroll my family and me.

The funding would bring our household current with all of our bills again and restore our sense of stability. I am in the process of applying for the Army Reserves and am beginning to tutor students after school. Your donation would not only impact my family temporarily, but forever. I have always taught my students and my children that our role is to help one another out and truly make a difference in each other's lives through kindness. It would be amazing to have a personal, real life example to support this assertion.
