Church burial for someone with zero income - indigent

Post by sam1 » Sat Feb 24, 2018 8:29 pm

Good morning, I would like to know if the church can help bury my patient who passed away on Saturday at the age of 94. She has no income, is indigent and has only one niece who has financial problems and cannot give her a decent burial. I live in New York. Please contact me as soon as possible, thank you God bless.

If the church can't help, maybe the government can. As many states help bury the indigent....which is people with no income, savings, etc. Try a social service office too. Read funeral assistance programs.

My sister just pasted and I had to help my family with the burial as they had zero income. And now my light bill is two months behind and I will not be able to pay all my rent this coming month. I'm disabled and I have 3 kids and 2 are disabled. I'm just worried about the coming month. I hate to as for help because I never had to. But I will appreciate anything from the church to help with the burial. Thank you and God bless.

Hi. My name is Tiffany and I am reaching out to you on behalf of brother Vernon. He suddenly passed away in his sleep and we need a church to bury him as he was indigent. We don’t know how but we do know that he deserves a proper burial. No amount is too small. Anything will help. He was found yesterday morning the 29th. We are trying to find a funeral home that will take his body. Please give me a call.

Hello my name is Katherine. I was doing a general search to find out if there was any program that help pay for funeral arrangements for low income families and the indigent. And your organization popped up I was reading but didn't see anything but still was wondering if there was a program that you could tell me about for funeral help for indigent. My mom just passed yesterday and I have never been the one to deal with this head on. We live in Bronx NY. Thank you.
