This person has left the following thank you note:

i feel honored, humbled, and truly grateful for modest needs and the donors that were compassionate to donate to my family during this hardship,,,my bills had gotten so out of control that i was stressing everyday until i picked up the phone and called our local 211 service for any other utility assistance and they told me about modes needs, an entity i never heard of,,when i first applied i was trying to pay gas and power bills, which then the winter had started and both bills became too much,, i reached out to modest needs and started the process of getting some help for me and my daughter,,my daughter just left for school in august, so i no longer had her help, i was using plug in heaters for a while until i could get my gas restored,, however, everytime i called modest needs for question they quickly called back and answered all my questions promptly, i attempted to use our local JCCEO service here in Birmingham, but they had run out of funds, i gladly want to thank every person involved from the bottom of my heart for kindly stepping in and assisting me with much needed help ,,,,,,thanks Faye

Ankle Injury Left Me Out of Work With No Pay, Please Help Save My Home

My Story:

I am a divorced female with an 18 year old daughter attending college in Montgomery. I work full time but unfortunately am living pay check to pay check while also trying to help my daughter.

Although I work full time, I am hourly at $11.50 so I try to get over time as much as possible. Most times it is not allowed however. I was out of work due to an ankle injury in December into January. I was not able to walk, and had to take time off without pay. This put me in a real bind and on top of that I had to replace the clutch in my vehicle. I needed my car to go back to work, but this put me behind on rent. I need your help to catch up by assisting with rent.

I will be in a better position if I receive help because I am starting to work a part time job this week in addition to my full time. The car is repaired and the late fees have been satisfied to my landlord, but I still need a last bit of help to get all the way caught up. Your assistance will make a huge difference in my life. Thank you so much.
