SOME HELPFUL HINTS

WHEN LOOKING FOR FUNDING, THE INTERNET IS A GREAT PLACE TO START. THERE IS SO MUCH INFORMATION OUT THERE. THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONS THAT WANT TO HELP, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK. THERE ARE ONLY TWO ANSWERS YOU WILL GET, ONE IS YES THE OTHER IS NO, AND IF YOU GET A NO, THEN LOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE. WHEN YOU TALK WITH SOMEONE AND THEY CAN'T HELP YOU ASK THEM IF THEY COULD REFER YOU TO SOMEONE WHO CAN.


WE WILL BE ADDING TO THIS SITE QUITE FREQUENTLY, SO CHECK BACK IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO FIND WHAT YOU NEED. IF YOU NEED ANY FURTHER ASSISTANCE PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CALL AT 630-587-8100.
