Applications for Financial Assistance

Please note that we do not offer emergency assistance at this time. Detailed information about our monthly application cycle is below.


Welcome! If you are a resident of Medina County and are in need of financial assistance, you can apply to the Living God’s Love Samaritan Fund here at St. Matthew. Paper applications are available in a drop box on the porch at the Office Entrance on the Pearl St. side of the building. You may also click the links below to download an application and information about the kinds of assistance we currently have available.

We accept applications up to the first Friday of every month. The Board meets on the second Wednesday of the month, and funds are distributed at that time. Please note that there is a monthly application process, and this program does not have an emergency, shorter turn-around time.

If you have any questions or need help please contact Barb, Intake Specialist, at 330-725-8885 Ext. 60, or
