How To Get Your Share of the Billions in Stimulus Dollars
All of us have heard the saying, "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer", and never has there been a time in our history where this statement is more accurate. As Americans, we can no longer count on the promise that our children's generation will do better than our own. With the economic crisis, the housing bubble bursting, the rising costs of gasoline, electricity and food, many middle class and low income American families are suffering in silence. They are desperately in need of assistance yet don't have the slightest idea of where to start.
Find Family Resources is committed to providing its members with answers and potential solutions across a wide spectrum of our nation's current fiscal dilemmas. To help you get started in finding the assistance you require, we offer this guide to serve as introduction. Here we will introduce you to a number of common forms of public and private benefit assistance with links to more comprehensive guides related to your area of interest. It's our goal to not allow for "the poor to get poorer" but rather have the support and stability they need to contribute and help build a better America.
