The Bible teaches us to respect, take care of, and honor God’s money. Doing so creates financial freedom that allows us to be generous to those in need. At E91, we strive to be good stewards of what God has given us and want to live out the biblical mandate of care for our neighbors (1 Timothy 6:18). Out of this commitment, the Good Neighbor Ministry has been formed to care for those in our E91 community who are experiencing trouble securing the necessities of life, such as food, shelter, and utilities.
E91 is accepting participants in our Good Neighbor program. All requests will be considered. Please note the Good Neighbor Ministry is not equipped to handle emergency requests. It usually takes two weeks to process a request. If you are in need and cannot wait two weeks we suggest you contact www.211.org or call 211 to find other resources in your area. Completing the application does not guarantee that your request can be fulfilled, and some may only partially be met, depending on the availability of resources.
We do not take same-day appointments. Our front desk is not able to expedite the process in any way. The best way to ensure a timely response is to complete all forms accurately and upload all supporting documents. If you do not fully complete both forms of this application, it will not be considered for assistance.
Your request will be kept confidential. Someone from the Good Neighbor Ministry will contact you within 72 hours to go over your application and discuss, once you have completed the process below. Our Good Neighbor Ministry representative will ask you to participate in evaluating, planning, and creating action steps during the process. You will be asked to complete the action steps assigned to you. Failure to complete the action steps will disqualify you from future participation in the Good Neighbor Ministry. These steps may include a class, mentoring, or other activities. When we contact you, it’s possible you may be called from a blocked phone number.
