      Thank you for your comment!

I have also tried to help by searching for free programs for specific areas. Here are the links to those pages: (a post on my podcast website), and

      On the podcast website,, there is a map set up with links to a page for each of the fifty states. My goal is to list free programs by state. I have not gotten very far yet beyond setting up the pages. Many of the programs I have found are listed in the comments on those pages and some are in email responses. When I have time, I will get things more organized.
