What websites should I suggest for web n00bs who need to get jobs, homes, and making-life-easier help?

I'm compiling a list of websites for people who are just getting out of a California state prison. Many have never been online before. There is a wide spectrum of sophistication in this group so I'm looking for all types of resources, including but not limited to:
- basic craigslist type help (jobs, homes, gigs, furniture)
- lifehack-type help, like how to plan a $5/day menu
- reference sites, from wikipedia to bankrate.com
So far I have:
youtube.com (lots of instructions on there)
What else should I include (or not include, and why)?
Help with descriptions and caveats would be appreciated, too. (For instance, I am recommending wikipedia as a starting point, but will mention that it's unreliable for anything focussed.)
Please assume negligible research/Googling skills.
