Still Getting Over the Government Shutdown. Please Help Us Keep Our Home!

My Story:

I am a single mom with two grown boys and a 20 year old daughter, who lives with me. My daughter goes to college for Engineering and also works part-time. She loves helping people, and volunteers at a food pantry. I work full time for the Federal Government.

Together, we earn enough to keep the house afloat each month, but it's paycheck to paycheck. I work for the TSA and when the Shutdown happened in late December 2018, it set us backwards. I did not receive any pay for more than a month, and when I finally did the late fees had already piled up. I found it extremely difficult to catch up and get ahead of the quicksand I was in. We need Modest Needs' help to pay our mortgage.

This assistance would bring our household current again, and allow us to forge forward with some brightness in our lives. I have been a single mom forever, and have always found a way to keep things afloat. Your assistance will provide us stability and allow my daughter to get her Mom back who is not obsessed with this financial pit.
