For more than 20 years, Christ Church Cathedral has served the community by providing financial assistance to people in crisis. We’re very grateful for our dedicated contributors who make this ministry possible.

At the present time, we can help with utility bills only. We regret that we cannot provide rental or mortgage assistance.

How to Apply

To request assistance, send an email to with a copy of your bill. Ensure it shows your full name, address and account number. Please include your phone number in the email.

How We Help

Christ Church Cathedral will assist individuals once per calendar year by sending up to $100 directly to the utility company.

How It Works

Applications are reviewed weekly and will be forwarded for processing if all information has been received from the applicant (with a copy of the current bill clearly showing the address, account number, and amount due). If the application is complete, a request for $100 will be forwarded to the utility company for processing. Most credits appear on your account in 7-10 days but can take up to 21 days.
