User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI am completely at a loss for words, there are not enough words that I can say to express how appreciative I am to find that my daughters and I will still have a roof over our head, because we were fully funded with all thanks to you! I am forever grateful to you all! Just as each of you have shown the kindness in your heart and blessed my family and me, it is only right that I pay it forward! I will share this with my 9 year old and my newborn when she reaches an age of understanding, because this is a positive impact and example that was bestowed upon us that they can too learn from and bestow up the next person that may be in need of help! Thank you again and may God bless you all tenfold!

Single Mom Needs Rent Help

My Story:

I am a single mother of two girls. I have a 9-year old and a newborn, 1-month old. My 9 year old is full of life and very helpful when it comes to being a big sister. She is a great little girl who makes the best out of all situations, especially with all that Covid-19 has affected and with the new norm, having virtual school I am quite proud of how well she is adapting. My newborn keeps my 9 year old and myself on our toes. I am currently on maternity leave from my job of 7 years and 4 months where I am employed with a newspaper company as an Inside Sales Consultant and prior to giving birth for the first time ever, I worked from home.

I am currently on maternity leave. I received short-term disability at 60% of my pay for four weeks, funds which depleted are no longer available. With Covid-19 I was affected financially and with a growing 9-year old and a newborn on the way, I was unable to save. I am in need of Modest Needs' help to pay for my rent, which is one month late to maintain a roof over my daughter's and myself head.

This funding will bring my household current with rent, and give back my stability to keep a home intact for my children and me. Soon, my maternity leave will be over and I will be returning to work and to provide financially for my family. Your help would make such a positive impact on my family. I would like for my daughters to be able to give back and help those in need, just as we are able to receive help from others. Thank you.
