Finding financial help in Cincinnati, or Asking for it Anywhere on Aidpage
In my time of blogging andwebmistressing about financial help for individuals, I have found local sites
with more in-depth resources than this blog could provide to a whole country.That’s because most real financial help is in
fact locally-based, even if the funding in some cases, comes from the federal
government.In Detroit, Julie’s List
keeps up an impressive list of local resources for those needing emergency
financial help as well as those attempting to save a buck, or get a job, in
In Cincinnati, there is also a local
page, Cincy Benefits and Resources by Cincinnati VA Medical Center.While it has a couple of dead links (and some dates listed are distressingly...dated), it has
lots of local things that could be checked out that are more relevant to Queen
City people—and those from nearby northern Kentucky—than a broader national
source.For instance, low-cost carrepair, dental clinics, and computers for low-income people.Cincy Benefits promises to have more from
nearby Indiana in a future edition.
Often, postings involve
information on concrete help for a particular situation—burial expenses, money
to help with an emergency need, etc.—but sometimes people simply encourage and
pray for each other.Or, as in the
example I cited with computers, there are large postings on general
issues.The site’s administrators—from
the company People Networks Inc.—stress the need to keep yourself anonymous by not using your real name, address, or email.Thus you can encourage and advise other people while keeping yourself
safe and unspammed.It’s a very
different one-on-one approach from my librarianish blog and website, and one
that you might want to consider using if you have a particular need, or if you
want to offer your expertise to others in need.

And click on the subect headings below each entry for anything on the same subject that you didn't see on the first page. For instance, if you came looking for information on "veterans," click the "veterans" subject heading below to find more posts on veterans.
