Call a local church and make an appointment with the benevolence minister or pastor. You may have to call several churches to find one that gives financial assistance.
Visit the church at the scheduled time and day. Show a state-issued identification card or some other type of picture ID.
Meet with the worker or minister for an interview. Fill out the questionnaire and explain your need.
Attend any money-management or financial coaching class the church requires. If you are married, your spouse may also need to attend the class.
Accept any work the church offers, unless you are disabled or are a struggling single parent.
