Recovery and Relief Resources

Please read ALL of these links. Some of the items are fully within your ability to do by yourself with no paperwork - it's little stuff to help yourself.
Then there are others that are just ideas to keep in the back of your head. And then the rest are multiple links to assistance. I know there's no way to go through all of these in a day or even a week. But if you work all of the ideas, just a few at a time, you'll get through them all AND you'll get more help than you thought was ever available. It doesn't mean I'll take you off the site, but it means life will be a little less stressful. OK?

As I am able, I will be adding state-specific resources as well. Please be patient as all my contacts are in MS. It takes a long time to build the information.

Weekly Updates From Leslie Just an overview of what I do in a week.
