As a caring community, CVC has established a Benevolence Team that exists to assist people in extreme or urgent financial need, within the parameters established by the Team and in light of God’s Word and for His Glory. Cuyahoga Valley Church (CVC) members and regular attenders may apply for financial assistance through our Benevolence Ministry. Requests from those not associated with CVC will be carefully considered for possible assistance. CVC will only consider requests that are short-term in nature. In most cases, no more than two events will be considered in any one calendar year. Repayment or services in exchange for financial assistance are not accepted.

CVC will consider providing assistance for the following:
• Rent/mortgage
• Utilities
• Phone
• Counseling
• Vehicle repair
• Vehicle payment
• Medical/Dental

CVC will not consider providing assistance for the following:
• Credit cards
• Cable
• Childcare
• Legal expenses
• Taxes
