Unexpected Emergency Car Repairs After Accident, Please Help Single Mother With Rent

My Story:

I am a hard-working, dedicated, single mother of two amazing sons. My 12 year old is very laid back, loves basketball, video games and keeps me level-headed. My 9 year old is an old soul who loves to read, cook, and help me around the house. My boys are truly blessings from God, and they keep me going. I work full-time as an Administrative Assistant for a local municipality.

I earn enough to pay for our basic expenses every month, but being a one income family causes us to live paycheck to paycheck. I unfortunately was involved in two automobile accidents in a 5 month span where I was deemed at fault. As a result, I had to pay two $500 deductibles to have my car repaired in that time frame. It is our only means of transportation. Those payments caused me to fall behind in my rent. I need Modest Needs' help to pay my rental balance.

I am so worried that the boys and I could be out of a place to live if I don't get back on track with our rent. It needs to paid as soon as possible. This funding will bring my household current again, and restore our sense of stability. We will no longer have to worry about not having a roof over our heads. I will work to build up an emergency fund so that we will not face this type of hardship again in the future. Your help would lift a HUGE burden off of our shoulders, and also show my sons how wonderful it is to have people help others in their time of need.
