This person has left the following thank you note:

When I woke up this morning I was blessed for another day, but I wasn't expecting this help, I actually had given up and started to think of where me and my sister can move into or even might have to live out of the car. But through this organization you have blessed me with a fighting chance. And I hope my goals and my one year plan goes as planned and modest need would be the reason why I will be a fantastic nurse!I will be forever grateful and I hope one day I can give back to this organization the way it has given to me.

Domestic Abuse Victim Trying to Start Over

My Story:

I am a single female and a recent survivor of domestic abuse. I am trying to start over again at the age of 27. I am a hardworking medical assistant that is also in nursing school, trying to give my self a new chance at life. I also am helping my sister accomplish her dreams of college.

I had to completely leave the life I lived and turn it around before something horrible happened to me. I had enough of my husband's abusive ways and it came to the point where I was genuinely terrified that he would take my life away. I decided to leave but leaving in my head was easier then reality. I am now trying to obtain help with getting a divorce through Legal Aid, mental health help from a counselor at Women in Distress and getting back on my feet through my education. I need Modest Needs assistance with my rent after I had to pay for expensive car repairs.

This funding will bring my household current with all of our bills again. It will restore my sense of stability in the aspect I will still have a place at night to lay my head to rest. Once I graduate from nursing school then I will have a chance to get myself out of all the debt and to be able to save myself a small amount of money for rainy days. After the help from this grant program, I will use it as my inspiration to help others in turn.
