User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeMy family and I would like to send our most heartfelt thanks to all the donors who helped make our assistance possible. Without help from kind and caring people like you Im not sure where my family and I would be. We never expected to be in a position where we would need help and I wasnt sure what to expect. But the donors from this program have proven that people in need can get help. We cant thank you enough for this blessing. You all are amazing! I will take any and ever chance I get to pay it forward. We just want to say thank you again. And thank you Modest Needs for being there and working hard to find assistance. I wish nothing but the best for everyone involved in this. Thank you, thank you, thank you! The Thomas family.

Family Needs Rental Help After Missing work for Mental Health

My Story:

I am a married father of two awesome boys. My oldest son is 9 years old and loves dinosaurs and other reptiles. My youngest son is 7 years old and is Autistic. He loves trains watching movies, and reading books. My wife suffers from serve anxiety and depression. She loves to read, write, and coloring. My wife and I both work in Tech Support. We love our jobs. We like going Fishing as a family when the weather is nice.

My wife and I make ok money and normally do a good job paying all our bills but usually live pay check to pay check with no savings. My wife had to take FMLA due to her having some mental health issues. I ended up having to take FMLA as well to care for our kids and help her get back to being herself. With taking FMLA we missed work and got behind on most the bills. We got back to work and have been working to catch everything back up but we are still a month behind in rent. We are worried that we are going to be evicted if we don't catch it up as soon as possible. We need your help with our rent.

We are unable to pay this monthly rent payment due to missing work and then catching everything else up as well. If we didn't pay our utilities they were going to be shut off and if we didn't pay our car payment we were going to lose it and not be able to get to work. If we couldn't get to work then nothing would be able to be paid. At this point we are worried we are going to be evicted. We have no where else to go. We have no family here. My wife and I wouldn't be stressed about being homeless and we would have this huge weight off our shoulders. Your help would be a huge blessing.
