Single Mom Needs Rent Help After Major Car Repairs

My Story:

I am a single mom with one child. My daughter is 9 years old and she is very smart and independent. She love to play sports and dance. I work full-time as a Site Assigned Permanent Substitute Teacher for Virginia Beach City Public Schools. I am also currently enrolled into a Pharmacy Technician Certification Course at Ashword College Online where I am currently maintaining a 4.0 GPA. I have also completed a Phlebotomy Technician Course at ECPI University here in Virginia Beach. However, I am currently awaiting my examination date before I become certified.

My current salary is normally enough to cover our basic expenses every month but I am still living from paycheck to paycheck. Due to the fact that I emptied my savings when we moved into our new home, I had no money set aside when my vehicle broke down about 3 weeks ago. This vehicle is my only means of transportation and without it it would be impossible to keep up with my daughter and I's work and school schedules. The cost of these repairs as well as having to pay for Uber while the repairs were being done has really put us in a financial bind. I need Modest Needs' help to pay for my rent payment, which is one month late.

This funding will help to put me back on track with all my bills again, as well as decrease my level of stress and restore my sense of stability. Within the next month I will be finishing my certifications and will be gaining a long term career that will not only help build my emergency fund but also help supply me with the financial gap that I need where I will not be living from paycheck to paycheck. Your help would not only make an impact on my family, it would also set a positive image for my daughter as she continue to grow and get older. I try my best to raise her to know that even the smallest gestures can change a person's life and that whenever she see a person that needs help she should either try and assist if she can.
