IF I HAD MONEY TO GIVE , I WOULD .
ALL I HAVE ARE A HEART THAT BREAKS RIGHT ALONG WITH YOURS ,AND TIME TO DO RESEARCH FOR HELP , SO THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO WASTE TIME FINDING IT WHEN YOU ARE JUST TRYING TO SURVIVE.
I DON'T HAVE PAT ANSWERS ,AND I DON'T HAVE A COOKIE CUTTER WAY TO HELP . EVERYONE IS AN INDIVIDUAL , AND EVERYONE HURTS IN DIFFERENT WAYS.
I DO HAVE TIME TO SHARE , AND PRAYERS TO SHARE AND I WILL GIVE BOTH WILLINGLY TO ANYONE .
If you would like prayers go to this page and leave me a private message :
"No one has ever become poor by giving."

So far , I have pages on two different sites , with one exception. The sites are Aidpages and Googlepages . The exception is an article that I wrote that a friend graceously invited me to put on his site.
Hopefully , this one page will sort everything out into one usable resource so that it will easy to find whatever may be of assistance in your life.
These pages are all monitored and updated on a rotating basis (I start with the first one on this page and work my way through to the last one ;)
What is my premise for helping others ?
"Love your neighbor as yourself." — Moses (ca. 1525-1405 BCE) in the Torah, Leviticus 19:18
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." — Jesus (ca. 5 BCE—33 CE) in the Gospels, Luke 6:31; Luke 10:27 (affirming of Moses)— Matthew 7:12
Suffering and joy teach us, if we allow them, how to make the leap of empathy, which transports us into the soul and heart of another person. ln those transparent moments we know other people's joys and sorrows, and we care about their concerns as if they were our own.-Fritz Williams

With the horrible lack of coverage in the area of dental care in this country , this has become one of the most used of all my pages
If you are in pain , and need immediate relief ,
this page has some ideas for what you can do until you see a dentist.

We who are in any of the following conditions need all the help we can get ! The 'help' for the disabled and medically challenged in our country is in a miserable state . We need HEALTH CARE REFORM . In the meantime , we help each other out by sharing sources of help . Here is one.
SINGLE MOMS AND THEIR KIDS
This area is the one closest to my heart. It is really a challenge being a single mom . When you don't recieve help and support from ex's and the social services let you down over and over , it is time to become your own advocate. Hopefully , these pages will assist you in finding the resources that you need to do this.
Some for their children too. As well as some freebies for homeschooling moms.This page started as educational aid only , but as I researched , I found grants and scholarships for other areas of life for women and single moms.
ON BEING POOR and, HOMELESS , AND THEREFORE PART OF THE INVISIBLE POPULATION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
* "When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed". - Mother Teresa
This includes a wonderful page from the net about being poor.
The more I search , the more my eyes are opened to the
subculture in our society of poor and homeless people.
We need an advocate. We need to be heard.
BEING POOR - read this if you dont know what it is like to be poor. if you are poor , you already know
THE INVISIBLE AMERICANS
Being poor can sometimes lead to homelessness. You can even be rich and become homeless overnight if you lose everything due to a run on the bank ( like during the depression ) or you max out your credit cards and then can't pay the monthly payments.Many people who live their lives on credit are just on the edge of loosing it all.
Here is a page to provide a window into the lives of the homeless. If you claim you care , then go to this page and read what it has to say.
*The section below is from a web site started by a homeless man :
He was publishing a homeless handbook.
After the first three chapters , it stopped. I don't know how much longer the handbook will even be on the net , so I am printing the whole thing on these pages.
My page about frugal but abundant living on a very low budget. I am in the process of learning how to live with grace as a low income disabled person . I believe that life can be lived with contentment no matter what the situation may be
Getting your car fixed , very low cost cars , free cars
When you are hungry and you have hungry kids and you need food now. This is really a page for when you don't have any other source of food at all right now , or you have run out of those 'generous' food stamps at the end of the month.
