Listen folks, I know that it is hard to ask for assistance if you have never had to ask for it before. Pride can get in the way but remember this, help is out there and for good reason. It’s for people who have had a financial crisis. Just click on the links, then get their numbers and give them a call, or deal with them online if possible. They are very friendly and most understand your situation before you call.
We will be adding more as time goes by, and if you know of any helpful sites, for any state, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add yours to the list.
