User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI don't know how to express how thrilled I was to hear you decided to grant my assistance request! I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am so happy to know there are kind and generous souls out there willing to help a single mother in need. Because of your thoughtfulness, I am alleviated from my current stress and have a new outlook on life. I thought there was nothing I could do to help my situation and having found Modest Needs never dreamed I would be deemed worthy of assistance. Thank you so much for your help! This will help me be able to not worry about how I am going to pay for my car insurance and focus on my son's the educational needs.

Mother of Son Diagnosed With Autism Needs Help Keeping Vehicile Insured

My Story:

I am divorced and live with my twin sister and her daughter in a log home in the woods. I have a 13 year old son who lives with us as well. I work full time, and keep my finances separate from my sister.

I live pay check to pay check and I no longer have a savings as I had to use all of it and then some to pay for my son's Autism testing. He requires therapy every month and I have to drive thirty minutes each way for each therapy session. I am struggling to stay afloat even with living with my sister. I do not get food stamps and have to pay for my healthcare out of my work paycheck. I need Modest Needs help with our auto insurance, so I can keep my car on the road to take care of my son's needs.

The funding would help take some of the burden off my shoulders. It would help me start building some savings again so I can have security for myself and my son. I want to save to get us a little home. Please help us.
