I Had To Take An Early Maternity Leave And Now We Cannot Afford Our Family's Rent! Please Help!

My Story:

I am a married mother of two. My daughter is 12 years old and my son is a week old. My daughter loves playing basketball and volleyball. She also loves arts and crafts. She makes myself and her step father a bracelet just about every month. My husband and I have been married for 6 years but together for almost 10 years. He is a social media manager at a real estate company, and we both earn enough to pay for our family's basic needs.

Unfortunately, I had to take an earlier unpaid maternity leave than expected to deal with some health issues. This leave ends on August 8th, and I will be returning to work. However, in the interim, we had to decide between our rent and our daughter's school tuition. This one-time assistance with our rent would be a life saver. Once I return to work, paying both bills won't be a problem. I don't know what we will do if our daughter is not able to attend school in the Fall. That is truly my worst fear, especially since she has been attending the same school since preschool. She feels safe there, and all the other schools in our area are absolutely terrible.

This kindness will bring our family stability and peace of mind. My daughter will be set for the Fall, and our family will not have to worry about having a roof over our head. I can focus on recovering from the birth of my son and returning to work.
