Finances got you stressed? Help is available

Every day we hear about the record number of housing foreclosures in Minnesota and an impending recession. Fear and anxiety often accompany any anticipated or real financial crisis.

"During these stressful times, we worry about family finances but often do not recognize the impact that fiscal angst has on the family as a whole," says Sharon Danes, family social science professor and Extension specialist. "Everyone in the family needs to adjust."

A series of 17 online fact sheets, Getting Through Tough Times, can help identify the social, emotional and financial wallop of tough financial times and what your family can do to adjust or to get help. Grouped by topics—Getting help, Making financial decisions, Managing stress, Doing more with less, and Helping children cope—these short, easy-to-read fact sheets offer some relief to people facing these financial difficulties.
