GOOD NEIGHBOR PROGRAM

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 receiving active 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. Not all requests can be fulfilled, and some may only partially be met. 

If you need assistance, complete the following steps:

Step One: Complete the Good Neighbor Application Form 1

Step Two: Download and Complete the Budget Snapshot Document 

Step Three: Complete the Good Neighbor Application Form 2

Your request will be kept confidential within our Good Neighbor Team and someone from the Good Neighbor Ministry will contact you within 72 hours to go over your application and discuss next steps. If you do not fully complete both forms of this application, it cannot be considered for assistance. 

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.

Please know that we have limited access to funding. No immediate/same day requests are fulfilled, but we’ll be doing our best to serve E91 and our surrounding communities effectively with the Love of Christ. 

If you qualify for the Good Neighbor Program through a Community Referral or a Partner School, please note we do communicate, share information and collaborate with our partners on applications and participants.
