Review for Modest Needs Foundation, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Modest Needs came through for me when every one else turned their backs or closed their eyes. I understand my need was not life threatening but it was an issue of health, self esteem, and generally over all cleanliness. My hot water tank died and I went for almost six months without hot water. I'm 57, I live alone, had just returned to college after 25 years, I've had numerous back surgeries and I have Fibromyalgia. Hot water helped me with both my back pain and my Fibromyalgia, and of course I could clean up in the sink by heating water, but I never felt clean. No one in my city of 50,000 was willing to help because they said hot water was not a necessity. Modest needs accepted my application right away, and on my last day I was approved. I wrote my thank you letter and my check arrived, in less than a week I had hot water. There really are no words to thank Modest Needs or the people who helped a complete stranger get back some comfort and feel better about herself and her life. Thank you so much.
