Laid Off For 3 Months, Help Single Mother With Rent

My Story:

I am a single mother of two amazing girls, one 25 the other is 14. I also have two cats and a turtle. My oldest daughter attends college for nursing and my youngest is in middle school. I have been teaching pre-school for the past 15 years. My passion is helping children and their families.

For the past 15 years I have been teaching young children, most recently at Head Start. But due to lack of state funding some of our classrooms had to be shut down. I was able to stay on until last October but I had to cash out my 401K in order to survive for the 3 months I was out of work. I am asking Modest Needs to help me with my February rent.

I have been able to use my 401K for my rent these past months but have fallen behind on my smaller monthly bills. For, example, car and insurance payments and utilities. If Modest Needs is able to assist me with my upcoming rent then I would be able to use my first paychecks to catch up on my smaller bills and get back on track with paying everything on time. I will be able to put a little money at a time back into my savings account in case of emergencies as well.

As of 2019-03-14, this application has been fully funded!

This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.

Application Status Update: On 2019-03-25, Modest Needs sent payment via Check in the amount of $696.00 to Pine Crossing Apartments on behalf of this deserving individual.
