Comment: I am a mentally disabled older...

Note: This aidpage was started as a comment on "US Federal Government Grants, Scholarships, Loans, Free Services"

I am a mentally disabled older person over 50 years old living in rural Southwest Virginia (Wise County). I have work skills, but most are "rusty". I have a good education, but those skills are over 30 years old! I feel I need to upgrade my skills and would like to know if there are any suitable no obligation scholarships out there. All I want to do is to pursue an online certificate in some in-demand field. However, I don't have the finances. Any leads or advice will be appreciated!

I need and want suitable work!  I also believe in helping myself...if I can!  I've been out of work, since May of 2006.  Further, I feel I need to and want to upgrade my skills.  I'd like to upgrade my skills by working toward a certificate in an in-demand occupation, but can't afford it.

P.S. In the picture, I'm the one in the middle!  :)
