Have you ever known anyone that needed help, but they didn't know where to find it and neither did you? How did it make you feel seeing someone you cared about suffering needlessly? How did it make you feel when you were unable to help a friend, loved one or family member when they needed your help the most?
How Help By City Got Started
Hi... My name is and I have been there. I have seen friends, family and loved ones who needed help and I felt helpless. I knew help was out there. I had faith that there are good people and organizations in America and across the world who want to help. I also believed that there were many government agencies that could provide
help too. The problem was that there was no one place that anyone with any type of problem (be it abuse, disability, financial, medical, etc) could go for help. I also know that there was no place that I (or you) could go to find help for those we cared about.
And so I have dedicated my life to creating one giant resource to help pretty much anyone with any type of problem. My first efforts at this ( and ) were aided by a group of nearly
one hundred volunteers from around the world referring to themselves as the (I love these people each and every one). Our combined efforts reached and hopefully helped millions of people by email and via websites and online campaigns. Unfortunately, I was unable to handle the amount of "incoming email" and
so had to find a better way.
I created a company (
) with the goal of learning to become one of the best website people in the USA. I would then use the funds from my company (instead of donations or government money) and the knowledge I had learned building websites for other people to create something bigger and more user friendly than the original websites. The new website would be designed to provide more types of help (Almost anything you can imagine in the form of information) for more people and would be broken down by city. And so what you are looking at today is one man's dream of helping to change the lives of many people for the better.
Help By City
What you are seeing is the first phase of Help By City which is a directory of helpful resources for those in need which covers cities in Southwest Florida, plus contains many national resources. By the end of the year those who are working with me at
) plan to expand this website to include all the cities in Florida. Our goal is to have created the largest resource of this kind covering every city in the USA by the end of 2012. After that, we plan on starting work on the rest of the world.
How You Can Help
If you know someone who needs help you now have a tool (This website) which you can send to them by email, by text or simply tell them about and allow them to find exactly what they need right here. It really is that simple.
Who You Can Help
You can of course pass the information on this website to people you know such as friends, family and loved ones. In fact, maybe one of the people this website can help is you, yourself. Maybe you don't need it today. But what about a year from now? Ten years from now? So maybe it would be a good idea to bookmark the website just in case some day you know someone who needs help. But what about the people on your mailing list? How many of them could use a helpful resource like this? And how many people do they know who might need help. With that in mind we would like you to feel good about yourself for passing this website on to everyone you know via email. It takes less than a minute and you may end up helping many people you have never even met.
How Businesses Can Help
Often those of who own businesses see people in the community who need help, in fact even members of their own staff, and at businesses they have a relationship with, that they want to help but they don't have the resources or information to help. With that in mind we would like to suggest to business owners that you can pass along the link to Help By City by simply adding our website to your website. And truth is, you may be amazed at how many people come back and thank you later and how many other business are suddenly willing to do business with you because you care about the people in your community.
To those of you who need help we hope that we and the people who sent you to this website have made a difference in your lives and that you know that people do care about you. To the people and the businesses who share our website with people who may someday need the information on this website, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make the world a better place, one smiling face at a time
