As I sit here in La Guardia Airport waiting to board a flight to OK to care for a family member who is ill, I am filled with hope and gratitude for your kindness and generosity in my time of need.

Your gift is such a blessing and will bring peace of mind in knowing I can move to my new apartment without financial burden. I look forward to giving back to Modest Needs when I am able.

I Don't Feel Safe in My home, but I Can't Afford to Move! Please Help.

My Story:

I am a single musical theatre performer and childcare provider. I love what I do for a living, but I've been facing difficult circumstances after having to rebuild my life due to a recent divorce. I am currently in an unsafe living situation and need to move at the end of the month as a result. Thankfully, I have found a place to live. However, my jobs have been impacted by the spread of Omicron in New York City, and I don't have the income to afford to move right now. I need to move out by the end of the month, and I desperately need help affording the cost of movers.

All of the quotes I've received have been too high for me to afford on my own while paying rent, and I'm worried that I'm going to have to leave a lot of my stuff behind if I have to move my belongings on my own. Getting out of my current living situation is my number one priority right now because I'm honestly scared of the situation that I'm in. That's why I'm asking for this urgent assistance.

I would be so relieved and so grateful to finally be able to move into my new place and to be able to start off on the right foot. I'll be able to afford my rent and groceries, and hopefully, I'll be able to get back to working consistently again very soon. I want to finish by just saying 'thank you' to everyone who helps me find safety and security as I work to rebuild my life. I will never forget this.
