Help Single Mother of Two With Rent After Lay Off

My Story:

I am a single mother of a two and six year old. I am hardworking and a three time college graduate with my MBA. I am a program Supervisor at the Urban League of Essex County serving under privileged youth ages 15-24.

Grant funding had ran out and I was laid off but will be able to return to work in February 2018. We live pay check to pay check and even this small gap of employment has caused us to fall behind in rent. We need Modest Needs help with our January rental balance.

This funding will allow for me to pay my January rent while I wait to return to work in February. It will ensure that my girls and myself are not homeless and ease the stress of not knowing where the money will come from.
