Coronavirus: Homeless Twice and Afraid To Lose Home Again!

My Story:

I have 26 years experience in hospitality industry. My daughter who will be 25 has been waiting tables as well for the last 7 years. It has always been us against the world.

Seven years ago, I woke up and quit my server job after 13 years of being employed so I would not have money to buy drugs. It is almost 7 years later and I have been clean ever since. I have always been a waitress for 26 years. After facing homelessness twice, I am finally have been in the same house for 3 years. Now due to Covid-19 I have no income coming in and I need Modest Needs help paying one month of my rent and gas bill.

If I can receive the help my household will have the stability to focus on achieving goals in my community. I will have a sense of purpose. This will allow me to be confident and not allow any thoughts of using drugs to forget. The help will not only me get ahead but also I would love to be able to help other people once I have stability.
