Churches and Charities Rent Assistance
The Greer Relief offers help to its community neighbors. This help is in the form of financial grants which help the recipients to keep their houses. Firstly, the Greer Relief representatives identify the root factors which might have led to the recipient’s current situation, and then the best solution is determined. The neighbor is then asked to fill out an application form, which after evaluation will determine what type of financial assistance is required. For long-term assistance, further financial backing is provided by The Greer Relief and other community-based non-governmental organizations. These relief funds may be used for bill (water, sewer, and electric) payments, rental charges, medication, and food sovereignty. The World Health Organization tasked the Greer Relief with providing these monetary help services to the people. Their main goal is to prevent hunger and poverty.
