Everything was going good in my life until the second week in March, I was on my way home from work and my vehicle’s engine seized up on me, leaving me without a vehicle. Then I had applied for a bigger apt. which I was denied, cos I didn’t income qualify. Things were definitely getting rough for me. Everyone at work was super cool with me and understanding. The operations manager talked with me about applying for MLBA. She even said she would sponsor me. Well I didn’t apply right away. I guess I felt bad and like other people needed the help more than I. My son had gotten injured on the job and has been unemployed for quite some time. I’m a single mother of a 14-year-old daughter, the struggle is real. I receive no child support and man if I did things wouldn’t be so hard financially. Anyway, Josh with HR talked to me one day at work, and talked me into filling out the papers and getting them back to him that day. I’m so grateful to the Colorado Springs site, and all their help. I received $215.00 for the rent I was short on. I can’t express enough gratitude to the MLBA for their contribution towards this.
