Picking Your Brain For a Minute

I am wondering if anyone anyone might have any suggestions. Want to help out a friend and not sure where to turn. A very dear friend of mine lost his son to suicide a couple nights ago. He was a single parent of the boy and his sister and the cost of burial will put a huge financial burden on him. He works hard and lives paycheck to paycheck. Is there any type of financial help around that helps with this type of thing? TY in advanced

Do you, or he, happen to be in the gay community at all? I'm a performer who has been part of NUMEROUS drag shows that have raised money for individuals in the community who are having some kind of personal crisis. If you have any contacts in the drag community.

Look into catholic charities, the county socail service department and some community programs.

Try church groups, setting donation jars at businesses, and also the funeral home might have some advice and places to turn to for help.

It depends. He could go cremation and that might be cheaper. Or just have a funeral and no wake.

...That seems cold to say, but half of lowering cost is finding how to lower the net total itself.
