Words cannot and will not express truly how my family feels at this moment. I first like to thank the Lord for allowing Modest Needs to be in existence and for the donors that believe in the mission. My family is beyond grateful that you assisted us from being evicted. The donations are truly a blessing and when we are financial stable we plan on giving back and donating to Modest Needs to help other families in need as well. Again to all the donors Thank You!
I Lost My Job to COVID. We Can't Pay Our Rent on My Husband's Income Alone & Need Help Please!
We're a family of four, but my oldest daughter is currently living with relatives elsewhere. My household currently consists of myself, my husband, and our 16-year-old daughter. Our daughter is remote learning right now and is highly intelligent. We're extremely proud of how seriously she takes her education. My husband and I have been married for 23 years and have survived a lot of hardships during those times, but with the Lord, we made it.
We're facing a new hardship together again in the form of this pandemic. I was working at a bookstore prior to the pandemic, but I was laid-off and was receiving unemployment until those benefits basically stopped. Since then, it's been hard to make ends meet with just my husband's income. Right now, we don't have any way of covering our rent for the next month and could use help with that.
We've been doing our best to stay on top of it, but I haven't been able to find work anywhere. We're going to be evicted when the moratorium expires at the end of the month, and we need to be caught up by then. In fact, eviction in our area have been picking up significantly so we could lose our home before then even. This whole situation has opened my eyes to what I believe is the most important thing in life, giving back to others. I've decided to search for employment in the non-profit sector so that I can dedicate my life and career to helping my community any way I can. With that being said, if we get this help with our rent, then I promise to repay it by helping another family whenever and wherever possible. On behalf of my family, we'd like to say thank you in advance for your support and generosity.
