"The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign just recently created a very helpful website for people going through tough financial times right now. It is so needed! They offer advice on how to cut everyday costs, how to relieve stress after a job loss, and lots of helpful ways to reduce costs in your home or how to deal with foreclosure. If you feel like you aren’t too knowledgeable in that area (most people are unfamiliar with their homeowner or rental rights and how a foreclosure process works) then you should definitely check out this website."
