Church Grant Assistance Programs To Help Pay Rent and Bills
Yes there are church grant assistance programs to help you pay your rent and bills. Most churches in your community will help you pay all or part of your rent if they have the money. Many churches have now expanded their charity scope to include things like rental assistance. In some cases, churches will help you pay your rent if you agree to help out with their services or volunteer your time in some capacity. So if you are having trouble paying your rent and other bills, then yes, going to a church might not be such a bad idea.
You can also dial 211 or go to 211.org and they will put you in touch with the nearest church or non profit organization that can help you pay your rent or get food on the table or put shelter over your head. Thank God we live in such a society where people can get help when they need it. The unfortunate part is that we still need more people and organizations donating time, money, cars, clothing and other items to these charities so they can continue to help others. We simply do not have enough charities and enough people donating in order to help everyone who is in temporary need of charity. Hopefully, as more people get help, they will turn around and help someone else.
