Hardworking Parents Both Changing Jobs At The Same Time, Fell Short This Month

My Story:

I am a working mother of three beautiful children, two boys and one girl and the loving wife to an amazing husband. My oldest son is off at college, my daughter is a 16-year-old junior in High School who is an aspiring chef and my youngest boy is a 10-year-old who aspires to be a lawyer and a football player. I currently work for Mile High United Way in our 2-1-1 Help Center and my husband is a Master Carpenter in the Carpenter's Union.

My husband's hours were cut at his previous job and he has found a new full-time job. I also will be transitioning to a new career in Health Care soon and that transition will leave a small gap in my pay. This has caused things to be a little tight and this help would allow us to breathe and get back on track. We are looking for help from Modest Needs to cover our monthly rent.

This help will keep us current and help us to remain stable. Our work situations will soon be sorted out and we will be back to normal. The work I do right now for Mile High United Way's 2-1-1 Help Center is very humbling and inspires my family and I do more in the community as well and if we receive this help we will be stable enough to provide more for those less fortunate than us.
