I am a Single Mother of 4 and Our Sole Provider. I Need Rental Help After My Child Was Hospitalized

My Story:

I am a single mother of four children. My two boys are 9 and 4 years old and my two girls are 6 and 2 years old. My oldest son plays basketball and the trumpet. My oldest daughter does gymnastics and loves to do anything outdoors. All of my kids are very energetic and very friendly. I work full time to support us.

I earn enough to pay our basic expenses each month, but sometimes can be paycheck to paycheck. I had no savings set aside when my youngest son got hospitalized due to his asthma last month. I had to take off work for almost three weeks, unpaid. I had no one to be at the hospital with him so it was left to me, and that put us in a financial bind. My children and I need Modest Needs� help to pay our rent payment which at this point is month late. I am back at work but will be unable to make up that payment plus this month to get back on track. It has to be paid by the end of May.

This funding will bring our household back current with our rent and back on track with our finances. I am in the process of trying to get a second job just to save up some extra money so that we can have a solid savings just in case anything like this happens again. Your help would make a very big impact on my family and would show my children that there are great people in the world.
