RESOURCES FOR FAMILIES IN NEED OF FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AND BASIC NEEDS is an organization that provides a place to get FREE information on assistance programs. It also provides general financial information around budgeting, saving, investing, and other financial self-sufficiency topics.
Millions of Americans are struggling and many of them are facing financial difficulties for the first time in their lives. They are trying to make the almost impossible decision every month over whether they should pay their rent, utilities, mortgage, or buy a needed prescription.  Many people are facing evictions, foreclosure, bankruptcy, or are close to having their utilities disconnected.
The information you find on, all of which are free, may be able to help you and your family make it through a difficult period.  Learn about financial assistance programs such as LIHEAP, Section 8, or eviction prevention. Services are also available that can help people gain longer term self-sufficiency through job training or other employment services.
Most of the organizations and programs listed have limited funding. Many resources will also have qualifications that need to be met, or an application that may need to be completed. Unfortunately, not everyone will be able to qualify for help.  Since funding is limited, even if you do qualify for a program, there may not be funds available. Also, any financial assistance provided tends to be only for a portion of your bills and expenses, as most non-profit agencies will only contribute partial funding.
The organizations listed on the website provide information about services offered with contact information for several non-profit agencies, government and public assistance programs as well as charity organizations. Some information may also include financial services offered directly to consumers from private companies such as utility companies and credit counselors.
