My brother and I would like to open a nonprofit organization

Hi, my brother and I would like to open a nonprofit organization to help the homeless. It seems that there are a number of costs associated with starting a nonprofit. I was wondering if there was another way that we could be of assistance without the need of nonprofit status. If we are not looking for donations and just want to contribute are own resources and time, can we publish a website and get started? Are there any concerns or legal matters we need to be aware of. If we choose a name to put on a website, do we have to incorporate?Thank you.

I have a question about business structure. I live in Texas

Hello, I have a question about business structure. I live in Texas and will be filing a startup LLC on Friday.I want to pursue a few lines of business within the LLC, one being an electric publication, another being audio recordings, and another of social enterprise activities regarding teens.My question is: I wanted to create a different name for the electronic publication outside of the parent company name, but if I do this, would I have to file a separate name ( XYZ Publications), or would XYZ be a branch of the parent LLC, without further filing and the revenue and taxes are gathered under the parent company? Or just have one name?

I am in process of starting a business I wanted to get your

Hi I am in process of starting a business I wanted to get your advice about whether I should open as a DBA or an LLC. I originally thought I would do an LLC but I did my own research and realized that I am not going to have any debt related to the business, and I would never get sued by customers or anything like that, so I don't really see much benefit for me to start an LLC because those two situations won't ever apply to me? I am opening up a small business and so maybe I just need to get registered as a DBA to make it official, but are there any other potential benefits to an LLC that I might not be aware of? Again, I am not going to have any kind of debts related to the business; nor is this the kind of business where I would be sued by customers. Also, when I read up on LLC's I didn't really see much possible benefits besides those two things (for a small business).Thanks.
