It is very important not to list your personal e-mail address on aid Page. Phishing, and scams are targetting the people on this site. Claims of winning milions, and giving money away have flooded my in box.... These scams are tempting....This is a warning.....THOSE ARE SCAMS-- Sands

Hi Sands, I’m glad that it worked out :-). During the installation, in order to receive registration from the server, for both products (Federal Money Retriever and GrantGate) you need to be online. After the successful installation you may use them offline, but I would recommend - at least once a month use them online. Both products are updated automatically over the Internet and they are checking for new updates on the first start every day. So, if you start them at least once a month while you are online, you will be up to date. GrantGate’s database is rather large and only partially on your computer. All the IRS reports are on the server. As I mentioned you may use GG offline, but if you would like to see a particular IRS report you have to be online. And one final suggestion – use both products in conjunction with aidPage. Both products provide easy way to search and manage lists. However, the data on aidPage is updated more frequently. FMR contain all of the government programs and they are updated twice a year, as they are changed by the congress. The actual grants and loans for these programs are updated daily on aidPage (see the first link below). The same thing is true about the IRS reports in GG. Once you identify the list of organization that are of interest for you, I would recommend to find them on aidPage (see the second link below) and to check for latest IRS reports – you may find a newer one online. Good luck!

I exspected a much larger check today- I worked much much more last month, I had an average of five clients per week. 24 during the month to be exact. I do not know if the billing lady is doing her job as the geroup I am in operates on trust, there are no checks and ballances. So she cut me a check for $650.00. The last time I worked with that many clients in a month she cut me a check for $1200.00. She said that there is $2900.00 in unpaid insurance claims but she would not tell me how to get that money. Am I being taken advantage of? Is there a way to know for sure if I am paid what the billing lady brings in for my clients? I exspected over $1000.00. I get a check once a month and $650.00 will not go very far. Help.....Sandi

Emergency We are in very deserate need for help with paying bills, and with christams for the children. We have little money from work comming in. As a single parent I have supported my children all on my own for years with no help. I was taken away from my family as a baby for child abuse and grew up in the "system" so the children do not have grand parents to help. The father is a dead beat dad. They count on me for everything. My foutteen-year-old daughter wants to play basketball, $325.00 I can not afford that, I can not pay $300.00 for her to take drivers ed. I home school my eleven-year-old son who is disabled. Grand Haven Christian School exspelled him because they did not have money for special services for him, actualy he was exspelled within one month of PR firing me. We are awaiting a hearing for ssi, which could take another two years. By that time we could end up with nothing, that is what I fear. I have submitted several resumes for work, and have recieved several letters of rejection. I feel I am black listed for whisle blowing at Pine Rest CMHS when I worked there one year ago. My contract was terminated after whistle blowing on unethical practices. Both me and my son got booted from a local so called christian organization, "School and Pine Rest,". I learned that some places say Christian but their actions are not allways God like. I am presently in private practice however, the work is not enough to live on and support my two children on. Pay runs between $325.00 and $800.00. I am an educated person who is trying hard to survive as a regular church goer and Christian. The children attend youth groups and go on mission trips also. At least up unti this point I had money to support those activities.If things do not get better I am unable to afford that any longer My daughter wears a size 1-3 small womens, and she is fair skin with blond hair blue eyes. My son takes a huskey in Levi's a size 10-12. He takes a size 14 in a shirt and undergarmets. We have no luxuries, no xbox, nintendo's I pods, cell phones and such. but we have each other and God with his people showing us love... Thank you and I do give when have it to give. And I all ways give of my time. If someone wants to give me the mom a gift on top of emergency money for bills-- a job-- more work please. 616-850-0701

My family needs help and would not ask for help on the web with out exausting all resourses first. It took a lot of guts to get to this point, of asking, it is embarrassing, to say the least, humbling. At times even in professional organizations, people are refused help. Crooked cops, and incompetent professionals, and limited resourses with excessive families in need can and does at times create professional rudeness, and inhumane teatment. I to used to look through rose colored glasses, until I exsperianced the pain of rejection of human error, of incompetance, from the professionals insecurity, jeliousy, or what ever, this is humanity and it is not allways nice. Just because the Salvation Army and others are supposed to be nice they some times have people working there with problems, which in turn hurts others. I am sure and have exsperianced others using people kindness, and that taking advantage of others kind nature exists, however most people who ask for help need it, and if they say they can not get help other places who are we to judge.
