If there's one thing we know for sure, it's that tough times eventually hit all of us. If you or someone you know is in need of financial help, we encourage you to nominate them or yourself to be one of our Still Kickin Heroes.
But of course, we can't choose everyone (HOLY MOLY, we wish we could), so we've included some awesome — and vetted! — Minnesota-based resources and referrals here to help you (and your human) out when the going gets tough. We also have programs like the Hot Young Widows Club and Still Kickin IRL to help provide emotional support and community to those who need it.

They help pay for large non-medical bills, like mortgage/rent and utility bills, and also provide gas and grocery gift cards. They're speedy fast — an approved application receives money within one week.
