Unexpected Unemployment, Back To Work And Can't Pay Rent

My Story:

I have been working and trying to save for over 15 years now and there always seems to be something that comes up to drain my savings. I then start back at square one. I was taught to work hard and be respectful. I love to spend time with my dog, friends, and family. I also like coaching softball to help girls achieve their goals.

I normally live paycheck to paycheck and sometimes can save a very small amount. But then I lost my job unexpectedly and struggled to regain employment for two months. I received a full-time job recently. Being unemployed drained any savings that I had and now I am going to struggle to pay my rent next month. This situation has made me stronger and shown me I can overcome adversity. I now need Modest Needs to help pay my rent payment.

I fear that I will be evicted from my apartment and my puppy and I will have no where to live. The funding from Modest Needs will relieve the financial stress which is causing me to lose sleep. I will be able to have more time to build up savings from my current full-time job. This way I will be able to afford my bills in the future.

As of 2018-01-29, this application has been fully funded!
