concrete back porch need railing

We are almost to closing on our first house and we have a approx. 4 foot concrete porch that runs the length of the back of the house onto a sloped backyard. It has detached stairs that are too short and dangerous along with no railing. We want to make it safe with a railing and new steps that will attach to the porch. But we need to do it inexpensively. The top row of cinder blocks on the outer edge were laid so that the holes are facing up. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

You could build a compliant railing and install it in the open holes in the blocks. Check your building code for the preferred height for the railing. This would probably be the least expensive option.
