It seems like I am hearing of more and more people who are in need financially. My heart breaks for them and I would love to just give them the money they need to help them out of their situation, but that isn't possible for me at this time since we are living on a tight budget ourselves. However, even if you are living on a tight budget yourself, there are still ways you can help a family in need. I was glad to run across Fulfilling Needs on a Budget. This is a post I wrote four years ago and it still rings true today.
I encourage you to read it and see how you may be of help to a family in need near you.
