Many families in the United States have a rough time making ends meet. Circumstances, out of their control force them to make decisions that normally they would not have to face, including loss of employment, unexpected expenses, health problems, or changes in the family dynamics. When situations like these occur, families need a helping hand to get them back on their feet.
