Help Keep Single Mother of One in Their Home After Car Repairs

My Story:

I am a 30 year old single mother to an 11 year old boy. I work very hard to take care of him and my mother who is not working because she is sickly, trying to get her disability due to medical issues. My son is an honor student and plays sports. I am a central sterile processing technician at a surgery center.

I only earn enough to live paycheck to paycheck so we do not have any room for unexpected expenses. My car broke down on me out of no where and was in the shop for a week. I had to catch rides to work in order to provide for my son. I had to replace the water pump and coolant system. Now they are saying a catalytic converter is going to be needed soon. I really need Modest Needs help with my rental payment after these car issues.

This funding will help me to bring my bank account current. I can also at least buy my only son some clothes and shoes for school. I am seeking a 2nd part time job to help supplement income. My family would be forever grateful for some help. It would be a great birthday present to me in September.
