A Car Crash Could Cost Us Our Home

My Story:

I am a single mother of two children, ages 17 and 13. My 17-year-old daughter is an honor student and is a varsity cheerleader and basketball player. My 13-year-old son loves to play football and basketball and he runs track. I have been an elementary educator for seven years. 

I left corporate America seven years ago to pursue my true passion. I absolutely love teaching; however, the income change has caused us to struggle. This year has been particularly difficult. I am working two jobs to keep things afloat, but with a recent car crash, things are falling apart. I really need help. I had to use my December rent money to pay for my windshield out of pocket and my car insurance deductible. We don't have wiggle room for these expenses and I need Modest Needs' help with my rent.

Your assistance with this funding will help me to get back on my feet and stay current on my bills. I am doing everything I can to provide for my children, and this funding will positively impact my financial situation. I would be able to ensure that my kids have a safe place to live and that I can afford groceries. I am determined to get to a point of financial stability, even if it means I must pick up a third job to make things work. Anything that you can do would be a blessing.
