Single Mother Is About to Lose Home After Car Repairs and Month Long Illness Put Us Behind

My Story:

I am a full time single mom of a wonderful 13 year old boy who loves school, especially math. I am full time, self employed as a personal chef, supplying people with healthy meals. I love my work.

I was very ill the entire month of February and could not work. That same month I also needed to replace my transmission which cost me over $3000.00. After the missed work, paying for a new transmission and paying for two months of rent, I have exhausted my savings and now I am unable to pay our rent in full this month. I am asking Modest Needs to help us. It would be such a blessing and help me move forward instead of having the over whelming feeling of being behind.

This funding will get me caught up with all bills and it would provide me a great relief. As a self-employed person and chef, I need to be positive and creative to gain clients and this has been very hard during difficult financial time. This funding will help me get back to a good headspace and I am positive it will help me get more business and allow me to replenish my savings.

As of 2019-07-30, 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 2019-09-27, Modest Needs sent payment via Check in the amount of $985.00 to AvalonBay Communities on behalf of this deserving individual.
