Helping to get through Hard Times

You might know a relative, friend or neighbor who lost a job or is having trouble making ends meet due to the tough economy. Chances are, that person is scrambling to figure out what to do next and how to stay on his or her feet financially.

LibraryThe State Library has a very helpful tool for Washingtonians who are struggling in today’s shaky economy. It’s called the Hard Times Resource Guide. This online guide has information and tips on finances and money management, employment and job seeking, housing, and much more. It even has a link on volunteering in your community.

The State Library is a division of the Office of Secretary of State. To learn more about the State Library, go here .

  1. Hi AJ, I can point you towards a few pages that may help.

    The Human Rights Campaign has a list of Washington State laws that may be helpful: http://www.hrc.org/laws_and_elections/state.asp?state=Washington&btnG.x=9&btnG.y=1.

    Lambda Legal has more information and a brochure about domestic partnership rights: http://www.lambdalegal.org/states-regions/washington.html

    You’ll probably want to look at Equal Rights Washington – http://www.equalrightswashington.org/ – and Freedom to Marry – http://www.freedomtomarry.org/states/washington.php – as well.

    Hope that helps!
