I want to thank you for helping my family and I in our time of need. The help that you have given us will allow us to finally get back on track with our finances and relieve the stress of worrying about losing our car. We appreciate your help more than you know and as soon as we are back on track financially, we will absolutely return the favor by donating to someone else in need who applies for help through Modest Needs. Thank You So Much!

Our Landlord Sold Our Home. Thanks to the Cost of the Sudden Move, We're About to Lose Our Only Car.

My Story:

I am a married mother of 2 girls. My oldest is 5 and is very caring. My youngest is 3 and she's very energetic. Both of my girls love to play and be outside. I currently work full time as a Pharmacy Technician and my husband is currently a stay-at-home dad.

My husband and I were forced to move out of our house due to our landlord selling it. There was no availability for the size that we needed, so we were forced to move in with my sister and her 2 children in her 2 bedroom apartment. We searched for awhile for an apartment big enough for the 4 of us but were unsuccessful. Then we finally found one but we didn't the money saved completely that we needed for a deposit. We didn't have any choice but to use the money we'd normally have used for three months of our car payment. plus everything we had saved (which wasn't much) to secure this home. Now, we finally have a place to live, but we're behind on our car payment and the finance company is threatening to take our only car. Without that car, we're not going to be able to work so losing that car would be a disaster for us.

This funding would mean so much to our family than I can tell you. We've been through a lot, all because our former landlord sold our home without notice, something we couldn't control. We've spent the last month so stressed that some nights i can barely sleep and it's taking a toll on our family. But now with your help, we could finally get back on track with our car payment and get back to living our lives. Thank you so much for helping if you can.
