Generally, if they have the funds, they will. I remember once a church paid our rent when I was younger. I overheard my dad talking about ti.

some do. Where I used to live if you showed them 2 eviction notices then they would help. Or something like that

Some due, if they have it. If you lost your job or are having a hardship they will try to help

Some will, especially n larger cities.. if you live in an apartment complex ask the office manager, they usually have a list of donating churches.

Some churches do. They may pay some of it or all of it.

My aunt's church does, but requires you to sign a thing saying you'll help out in Sunday school twice in three months.

Some will help, others not so much. My SO has had to go to 3 different priest..minister.. (whatever people want to call them) homes, and somehow they manage to afford Million dollar houses along the river.. hmmmmmm. I would assume those churches are not handing out donations. haha.

I think a lot of churches will help, but I think usually they only help out people who are members of their church. I may be wrong though.

Try a catholic church. Or, better yet, the catholic charities. They have been low on funding but they still take only a certain amount of people. A few years back my best friend just asked for help with his electric bill, just to pay it current. They paid all of it, then a few days later he went to pay rent and the apartment manager said the catholic charities had already taken care of it. They are a fantastic charity, they just can't always help everyone. Typically most agencies, like them, will take applicants once a month, I know here they take them the second to last Tuesday of every month.

My husbands church always helps. If she can find a Latter Day Saint church they always are willing to help. I think that is what his church is called.
