Help Newly Single Mother Keep Her Home

My Story:

I am a separated mother of two wonderful daughters. My 15 year old is an honor roll student and plays varsity basketball for her high school. My 2 year old is so smart, outgoing and loves to learn new things. I work full time as an accounts payable clerk and HR associate for a company I have been with for 18 years. I also work part time as a cashier for a hardware store.

We have always earned just enough living paycheck to paycheck. Earlier this year my husband and I separated, and I had to take on everything alone. He had drained any money we had before I made him leave. I am currently working 2 jobs and earning enough for basic expenses, but there is no way I can catch up on my past due mortgage alone. I need Modest Needs' help to pay my mortgage payment.

I am worried that I could eventually lose my home if I do not get back on track with my mortgage. Your help will bring my household current with bills again and restore our sense of stability. Your assistance would make a long lasting impact on my family, and it would set a wonderful example for my daughters. I would like for them to see that people can truly make a difference in the lives of others, and use this as my inspiration to help others in turn.
