Father With Heart Failure Needs Rent Help During Retirement Transition

My Story:

I am a 65 year old man with heart failure that has caused me to be terminated from my job of 10 years. I have my adult son living with me and he works on a part-time basis and goes to college full time.

I was diagnosed with Heart Failure in 2008 and it has progressed to the point that I can no longer perform my job duties. I have been off work since December 28th and was receiving Short Term Disability payments. Once my employer received this evaluation they terminated me. With the unexpected retirement I was forced to start, I only have had my pension income and Social Security doesn't begin until end of May. I need the help of Modest Needs to pay for my rent during this gap of income.

This funding will allow me to keep roof over my head and help me regain my stability moving forward. I truly appreciate help of kind people like you. Your help will allow for an easier transition and let me focus on my health. Many thanks.
