User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeHow do I even begin to put my gratitude into words, honestly there are no words to explain how grateful and indebted I feel to those donors who have helped me!I cannot thank the donors enough for helping me out during this difficult and emotional time. What I can say is, thank you for giving me this chance to get back on my feet and thank you for helping me keep my home for my daughter and I. The only other thing I can say is, I promise, when I am able to I will pay it forward with this organization. I want those who have helped me to know, that this is not only helping me financially but this is helping me mentally and emotionally. The weight that has been lifted off of my shoulders is indescribable. Thank you again! Your organization will be seeing me in the future, not as an applicant but as a donor! Sincerely, Christine

Emergency Surgery Had Single Mom on Unpaid Leave. Please Help Me Catch Up!

My Story:

I am a single mom to a 7 year old daughter. She loves being outdoors, around animals and playing with our puppy. I work full time as a Patient Service Representative in the Pediatrics department, and I also go to school full time working towards my Bachelors degree all while taking care of my daughter. My daughter is my world and I work hard to provide her with the life she deserves!

Recently, due to a medical condition, I had an emergency surgery causing me to miss work. I am the only provider for my daughter and myself so this time off caused a financial hardship. I tried to return to work as soon as possible as I was not eligible for any paid leave. The surgery was both mentally and physically hard and I just want to get caught up and back to a normal life with the two of us. Really, I'm trying to catch up on my rent, but between my July rent and June late charges, the amount I owe is over Modest Needs' limit So I'm asking for help with my cell phone bill so that I can take the money I normally would use to pay that bill, put that with money I'll earn this month, and FINALLY catch up on my rent.

This funding will help me caught up and not accrue more debt and fall farther behind on all my bills. I struggle to keep my daughters life uninterrupted and would hate to have to put her through moving from our home. My daughter can continue with understanding that although there may be struggles in life there is always a way to continue on without giving up.
