I Was Laid Off. I Lost a Month's Pay & Will Be Evicted in 2 Days. Please Help Me Keep My Home.

My Story:

I suppose there's nothing really special about me. I'm just a single female. I live alone, and I work full time. I enjoy spending time with my pets, taking walks, and watching my favorite TV shows. I live a humble life, but I'm really happy. I grew up very poor and I swore to myself that I'd never let myself get into the kinds of situations I was always in as a child, wondering where our next meal was coming from. I got a good education and a very good job, and until last month, I've always been able to pay my bills on time.

Last month, though, my employer hit a snag and I was laid off. I lost a whole months' income before I could go back to work. Now, even though I don't make a lot of money. I live paycheck to paycheck, and I don't have a lot of savings. I had to use everything I had to pay my utilities and buy food during the month I was out of work. But I couldn't pay my mortgage. I'm now a month behind, and the bank is threatening to foreclose if I don't make two payments this month. My house is all I have, and I can't make two payments this month, and because I don't have any kids, no one will help me, even though I've never asked for help from anybody.

Can Modest Needs please, please help me keep my house by paying this one payment? I hate to even ask, but I have no one else to turn to for help, and your assistance would mean the world to me. This funding will bring my household current and save my home, and maybe then I'd be able to get at least one good night's sleep because I've been too worried to sleep. You really are my last hope. Thank you for helping me if you can.
