This person has left the following thank you note:

First of all thank you so much for funding my Modest Needs request . I'm still shaking and crying tears of joy! God is great and so are you. Since we applied my situation had worsened due to car repairs and my anxiety and depression had worsened. It's so nice to feel this burden lifted from my shoulders knowing that someone really cares. Now I can go forth with my professional goals with confidence as I don't have to worry about our well being. This is the best New Years ever! Once again, thank you. I won't let you down. God bless you! Love, Roque and family

Single Dad Schedule Change At Second Job. Need Help With Rent.

My Story:

I am a single father of one. My son is 21 years old and was enrolled at Penn Valley Community College but has recently taken a break in order to work. We enjoy being at home with his kitty Vincent. I am employed as a Driver/warehouser. My son works part time as a stagehand.

This past August my part time jobs hours were cut and I have since depleted our savings. I am going back to work part time with Uber to keep our heads above water but rent is due and I don't have it. I fear that we could be evicted and be homeless if I don't seek help.

If we are blessed with this funding our rent will be paid for November and I can provide maintenance and repairs to my vehicle which I need for Uber. This funding would give us a sense of security as we head into the holidays.

As of 2017-12-30, this application has been fully funded!

This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.

Application Status Update: On 2018-01-03, Modest Needs sent payment via Check in the amount of $715.00 to Valentine Neighborhood on behalf of this deserving individual.
