Gap of Employment Could Leave Single Mother of 3 Homeless

My Story:

I have 3 amazing daughters. My oldest is 11 and just started her first year of middle school. I have a 9 year old in 4th grade and my 'baby' is 3. I am a single mother to these wonderful children and we enjoy our nightly dinners at the table where we can talk about our days, the ups and downs. I work full time for a Physical Therapy company doing medical billing, a field I've been in for 10 years.

I was very unexpectedly laid off recently from my job of 3 years. I was working one day, and the next I wasn't. Although I do my best, as a single mother it is very hard to save any money for these situations. I am so thankful that with my work experience and references I was able to secure another job. However it is proving very difficult to get caught up on bills that I fell behind on during my short employment gap. This is why I am reaching out to Modest Needs for help with my rent, I had no idea trying to get back on top would be so hard.

I have never faced this situation before, and with 3 children it scares me to think what will happen if we are unable to pay this. If the donors of Modest Needs find it right to help me in this situation, it will not only help in the most obvious way, by helping me get my rent current and secure our shelter but it will also help me realize that it was okay to ask for help. It will shed light on the good that is in our community and by community I mean humans helping one another, not just those immediately near us, but those far and wide as well. I appreciate the consideration so very much.
