Check with your local church's there are work groups in the summer that help low income ,seniors ,disabled

For free and some will even provide the materials usually they have 1 to 3 what they call work camps to teach the children compaction for ushers as well as adults working with them

That are a great gift to us all even ask the foods in your area the some times have advance notice of the wook camps

Benefit Types:

Food Assistance, Health Care, Prescription Drugs, Utility Assistance, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), low income housing, tax relief, respite care, free legal assistance and many other benefit programs are available.

To use the site, you enter basic information about the person in need-date of birth, zip code, and check boxes for what the person needs assistance with. The site generates a report instantly, listing links to the programs and services that the person may qualify for.

Some assistance programs can be applied for online while other have downloadable form to be printed and mailed, faxed or emailed in, and some require you to contact the program directly.
