I would like to thank all the donors that reached out to help my family. My children and I are so grateful to know that we won�t have to worry about being evicted from our home. Modest needs is an amazing program and I am thankful that I was able to receive the help that I needed. God bless you all!
Emergency Surgery Put Single Mom of 3 Behind on Rent. We'll Be Homeless at the end of July. Help!
I am a single mother of 3 amazing children. My 17 year old son works a part-time job, my 3 year old daughter loves to draw, and my 10 year old daughter loves gymnastics. I currently work from home full time to support my kids, and I'm proud to tell you that after a lot of hard work and good budgeting, we're actually doing OK most of the time. We don't have much extra, but every month, our bills are paid on time. I think that's important because I want to show my kids what it means to pay your bills and keep your word.
I'd rather be here giving than asking for help, but at the end last June, I found out that I would need emergency. I have insurance but the deductible for this was $1600, and the hospital refused to do the procedure until I paid the deductible. I didn't have a choice and had to come up with this money on short notice, so I used our July rent money and part of our grocery budget to pay this bill.
I'm doing fine after the surgery, but my landlord is getting angry because I haven't been able to pay the July rent yet. If I can't pay it by the end of the month, he says he's going to have no choice but to file for eviction. After all of this hard work, I don't know what I'm going to do to keep our home so I'm asking you to please help us catch up on rent. If you can please help us keep our home this one time, we'll be fine going forward and you'll make a real difference in my whole family's life, especially my three kids, because without you they'll be homeless in a few days. Your help will show my children that there are positive people out there making a difference in not only our lives, but the lives of others, and my children will follow your example. Thank you for any help you can give us.
