No I didn't. I will. I will probably have more info as I go through my old work files. I used to work as a peer advisor to other single moms on welfare and on a welfare reform committee. I have boxes of resource binders. Most are for that particular community but some would help people all over.

This is a 'generic' guide for anyone who has a home, not matter if it's a house or apartment. The seasonal preventative guides are awesome!
