I am a Single Mother Who Needs Your Help With Rent After My Car Broke Down

My Story:

I am a single mom of a 14 year old boy. He is a very good student and knows not to ask for a lot because money is tight. He enjoys playing tennis and archery, both which he has been exposed to at school. He spends a lot of time home alone as my schedule involves long hours. When I'm home we like playing puzzle games together or going hiking.

Unfortunately I live paycheck to paycheck. My car broke down and required the clutch to be repaired and I need my car in working condition in order to get to work and to get my son to school. Having to pay over $1000 to get the car back in a safe condition has left me with no money. I need Modest Needs' help paying for my rent in order to keep a roof over my family's head. I am worried I will get evicted and incurred eviction fees if I do not pay my rent on time.

This help will get me and my son back on track to be current with our expenses. I am working on getting a second job in order to begin a savings account. I feel very defeated as an adult that I cannot provide for my family and you help would be very much appreciated while I get back on my feet.
