User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI can't express my gratitude enough for the donations given to my little family in our time of need. As I reach the due date for my current pregnancy, keep up with my older son, work full time, and go to school full time- THIS mattered. Being able to have a sense of calm amidst so much releases stress that I did not think would be going away anytime soon. I truly appreciate every donor and every dollar given to us. Thank you and I hope that each and every one of you receives a blessing as well. Forever in my prayers. -Catherine and her boys

Missed Work Due to Flu, Single Mom with Baby On the Way Needs Help to Save Home!

My Story:

I am a single mother of a 7 year old boy and expecting another boy this upcoming July. I currently work full time as a daycare teacher and am enrolled in school full time with less than a year to go towards my BA degree in ECE. My son is a very athletic little boy who plays basketball and football along with getting amazing grades in school. He was diagnosed with ADHD/ODD/DMDD and overcomes daily challenges to stay on task and show others how awesome he truly is. We both love to stay active outside as I coach many of his league teams and enjoy our car band jam sessions as well as at home movie nights.

I manage to juggle a full-time work schedule, school, and all my mom duties. But in the month of March, both my son and I contacted strand A Influenza which caused me to miss over 2 weeks of work. This, in turn, caused a ripple effect on my finances as missing even a couple of days of work alters my monthly income budget greatly. Since then I have been trying to play catch up by maintaining rent, utilities, and car payment. While I am a month behind on my car payment, my priority is to get my rent paid. I am asking Modest Needs for rental assistance so I get to keep my home.

This funding will impact my long-term situation by helping me not get further behind on bills. This funding will help me get caught up with all my bills and moving forward I can focus on my son's needs and my baby on the way. Your help would be very appreciated.
