User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI sit here on the side of my bed and give thanks to each and every angel that came through for me and my puppy. It has been a struggle as I settle into my new life but rewarding. With the help I've received I'll be able to redistribute other funds to my car note, registration, insurance and new front tires. I will be able to continue to get to work so I dont fall behind again. No matter where life takes me, I will forever remember the group of strangers who came together in my time of need. Honestly no words I say can really express what I feel and I intend to continue the tradition. Many blessings from my house to yours.

Relocated and Delayed Job Start, Please Help With Rent

My Story:

I am a single, career driven female author with a B.A. in communications from California State University. Besides my full time job, I'm also a caregiver for my mother who was convalescing for a year after an accident and to my younger brother who has schizophrenia. I have an amazing emotional support puppy named Sasha and she gets me out of the house and into nature weekly. I just started working part-time at a local diner as a hostess and will continue to pursue my dream of becoming a full-time author and mother.

While living in San Diego I worked full time for Lyft but was barely making enough to cover rent and electricity. I made the decision to relocate to Arizona when my landlord raised my rent suddenly. I had already received a job offer before I made the jump and had enough saved for a month, incase of any emergency. My training was put on hold for three weeks due to the store updating it's system and the trainer being on vacation. I had to start asking friends for help with food and basic needs. Now, I am earning enough to cover all my bills, but I still need help to catch up on my rent for this month. I need Modest Needs helping hand to help me keep my home.

This situation has spiked my anxiety and caused me to need doctors intervention. Your help will bring me up to date with my rent and give me the chance to catch up on my other bills. I have applied and have an interview for a second job at the local Walmart. I will put half of that check away for any emergencies that may arise for the future. This will also allow me to reestablish my donations to local charities with canned goods and non perishable foods.
