Domestic Violence Survivor Needs Help to Save Her Home

My Story:

I'm a single mom, I live with my son who is 17 years old. He is a junior in High School and plays football. He is extremely dedicated to school and to playing sports, he is driven to get an athletic scholarship to college. I am so proud of all his hard work.

I suffered domestic abuse for 8 years, it was physical and emotional abuse but I was also financially abused. His control robed me of the ability to use and maintain my financial resources. I have a full time job and worked while I was in the relationship, but I had no control of the money I earned making it extremely difficult for me to do any type of safety planning or get out debt. I live paycheck to paycheck and any unexpected expense puts me in a bind. I had to get new tires for my daughter's car so she could take it back to school. I now need rental help. I tried to find help through local government agencies but to my surprise there is no help for someone in my situation. There is no help for working people, that is why I am turning to Modest Needs for assistance with my rent.

The rental office has given me a few weeks to pay but if I don't pay soon I will receive an eviction notice. Your help will bring y son and I much needed stability. Your help will get us back on track with our finances and I will be able to maintain my bills moving forward. Help from Modest Needs would allow this fresh start I have with my son to finally be on track, and allow him to focus on his school work.
