Every year, Low Income Relief helps millions of low income Americans save money, get better jobs, go back to school, get free stuff and generally improve their lives.
What is Low Income Relief?
My name is Nicole Thelin, and I founded this website in 2013 to help low income people make the most of their limited budgets.
As a young mom and a full-time caregiver to my disabled husband, I had learned a lot about how to save money, get help and even make money from home. I had worked in journalism for years, so I decided to put those skills to work to help others who needed help.
It has been many years since then, and now this website serves millions of people every year with helpful information.
