User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI want you all to know how much of a blessing this is to my family and I. We have been praying for a while now for a light at the end of the tunnel signaling that the tide was turning and your generous donations is that light. We would like everyone of you to know that we are so beyond thankful for this gift that you have bestowed on us in our darkest of days and that you kindness is so appreciated. I know that in these days of uncertainty it is hard to help others when you yourself might not be in your best place and that is the true meaning of humanity. So from the top to the bottom of my heart my family and I would like to say THANK YOU, thank you for your help, thank you for this gift and thank you for this blessing that means the world to us.

Induced For Early Labor and Unpaid Leave, Please Help With Rent

My Story:

I am a single mother of a 12 year old son and a 1 month old daughter. My son is into superheroes and my daughter is the sweetest baby girl I know. My mother also lives with us to help with the kids. I work full time as a customer service associate, but I am currently off work tending to my newborn daughter on an unpaid leave. My mother works as a secretary at the hospital.

Together my mother and I are able to cover our monthly expenses, even though we live paycheck to paycheck. I was induced early with my daughter because of complications with my pregnancy, it rocked our world and destroyed our financial plans. My mother has had to cover all the household bills alone. We need Modest Needs help to cover the balance of the rent. We are concerned that with another month of rent coming due and being behind a month of rent it puts us in danger of eviction. br />
The help from Modest Needs will get us current on our rent and keep us from having to face eviction from our home. This will give our household the stability it needs to get back on track.

As of 2020-03-30, this application has been fully funded!

This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.
