I know my church will help out with meals and such or help you moving, getting cars repaired etc. If you have a need and let them know they try to help.
I think some of the local churches have food banks but honestly am not 100%. They can be a good resource when you are down on your luck though.
Jessi when Ii read your response I realized that there are two facets to how our Church works and that is probably true for every church. The first being the formal help provided and then the help done as one on one charity.
Formally the church Provides food, and toiletries. They will provide assistance with essential bills. I have heard of morgages/rent being covered but that may be dependant on situation. There is funds set aside for Widows and Orphans, but I do not know how that works.
Independantly the sky is the limit from the mundain help of food brought over during illness, and moving help to serious gifts of cars, taking in strangers.
Once my husband and I drove a man to the airport, he was driving cross crountry with his daughter to her husband's new duty station and they ran into a coyote and messed up her car.
No idea, we don't attend church. My area is a very high population of LDS (Mormon) though, and I know they provide a lot through their church, however if it's done actually through the church you have to be a member of that particular ward.
