Coronavirus: Family of 4 Needs Rent Help

My Story:

I am a married father of two. My daughter is 4 years old and my son is due to be born at the end of July. My daughter loves singing and playing with her dolls. My wife is a devoted mother. Before being out of work due to Covid-19 I was a full-time substitute teacher. I am currently in the process of interviewing for a full time history teacher job for this coming school year. My wife once did cosmetology but has been home with our daughter for over a year now.

I earn enough to cover rent, bills, and food in a normal month. I had a couple months savings that has been exhausted since pandemic started and when I was no longer able to work as substitute teacher. I have since begun (last week) tutoring part time but the income I am receiving is not enough to cover our basic expenses. I now need Modest Needs help paying our one month of rent.

This help would greatly allow my family to breathe and give me time to receive income from my part time tutoring job. It will also give me peace of mind as I prepare to teach starting in August. This will enable me to stay up to date on bills and thus allow me to begin building a savings account, once again, sooner than would be otherwise able. It will also inspire to pay it forward and help those in need when I am able to do so, in the future.

As of 2020-08-05, this application has been fully funded!

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