Battling Depression, Greatly Need Rent Help

My Story:

I am a full time student at my local University. I love to read, write, study business and psychology, exercise, dance, and study nutrition and eat healthy. After working through homelessness from 17-20, and fluctuating homelessness for periods of time afterward, I've been able to complete 2 years and one semester of school and am very proud and uplifted by this fact. I have just recently started the most amazing jobs, I work for an uncle of mine as a Civilian Process Server and now as the Marketing Lead for his new car lot business. I am also struggling through periodic depressive states that date back to when my youth homelessness and significant family problems began. I talk to a counselor and I'm doing everything I can currently including starting antidepressants last week.

I unfortunately got into three car accidents last year all surrounding very stressful events happening in my family. I've had to pay three $500 deductibles and a one time, and an unusually high insurance payment of $756 last month. I have also been battling intense stress and anxiety and had an extremely difficult time finding steady work that was enough to pay my bills. I am asking for help with paying my rent for the month of February.

This would help with so much more than just my financial deficit. For the first time this year I've experienced the sharp painful anxiety and crushing instability and feeling of helplessness that is financial hardship. This help would help to relieve the state of crisis I feel. I've had ups and downs and progress is not linear but Modest Needs' Grant will help me get back on track. Thank you so much for any help you can provide.

As of 2019-05-19, this application has been fully funded!
