    I believe information and resources are powerful to help us and sadly can often be hard for us to find.

    It may sound silly, but I wish we had an Information Central on these boards or a board called RESOURCES where we could list stuff. I know the benefitscheckup.org (to find services you might be eligible for) that I put on the Disability Board is important for all to know in case they are laid off, disabled or are struggling so much.
