Thank you to each and every donor that had it on their heart to help me and my daughter during this trying time. This is the last hurdle we needed to overcome to get back on track and you all made it happen. I am so grateful! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

I'm Trying to Move to a Cheaper Home. If They Cut off My Power, I'll Lose Everything. Help!

My Story:

I am a separated mother of one child. My 16 year old is an aspiring animator that loves drawing. I currently work full time for a small managed service provider as a Desktop Analyst.

I was out of work for couple of months on unpaid medical leave to take care of a chronic health condition. I'm back to work now, but I have no savings and my housing expenses have gotten behind as I tried to recoup from the short-term loss of income. In order to resolve my current financial hardship, I need to pay my utility bill down to zero in order to move. I fear if I cannot resolve this large balance, I will not be able to move into a cheaper home. My current home is financially overwhelming and the stress of barely making ends meet has taken a toll on my health. I want to stay on top of both my health and finances going forward.

I need Modest Needs help to pay my electric bill so that I can move into a less expensive home without having to pay a huge electric deposit. Your help would have tremendous impact on my life. It would get me totally get me back on track and allow me the ability to move to a new, safe home. Any assistance would be very appreciated. Thank you.
