Coronavirus: Single Mom Missed Work: Need Help

My Story:

I am a single mother of 4 beautiful children. My 6 year old daughter is very nurturing and loves playing with her younger siblings. My 4 year old son is rambunctious, but also kind-hearted. My 22 month old is outgoing and also nurturing towards her new baby sister. My 3 year is one of the happiest babies you could every meet. I am a direct support professional and I take care of adults with disabilities.

I typically live paycheck to paycheck each month being a single mother. Recently, I went on maternity leave after having a C-section with my 4th child. I worked extra hours before maternity leave as much as I could to have most bills paid through my leave. When my maternity leave was coming to an end, I tested positive for Coronavirus. As soon as I was about to be getting cleared to return to work my 3 month old tested positive for coronavirus. I have been out of work a total of 4 months now and as I did not plan for this extended leave, my bills have begun to suffer. I am asking for Modest Needs' help to pay for my rent payment.

This funding will help with my household's largest expense so that when I do return to work I will be able to catch the few smaller expenses we have up and buy the necessities the babies need. I believe it will also show my children how a little help can go a long way and the difference they could make in people's lives by helping others in need.

As of 2020-07-20, this application has been fully funded!
