Find help with rent in Jefferson County Missouri.

Most of the rental assistance programs available in the greater Jefferson County region are located at churches, including SVDP. There are also some referrals given to the disabled as well as senior citizens on where to turn to for housing for their needs.

In general, churches have fewer resources than some other non-profits. This means that funding for paying costs such as back rent, utilities, or a security deposit will be vary limited. In addition the locations will generally only help members of the parish that have no other resources available. So tenants that have an eviction letter, that have applied for rental assistance at other charities and social service offices, may be able to turn to a local church as a last resort.

Based on need and funding available, the aid may come in the form of a loan or grant, which will not need to be repaid. Each Jefferson County Missouri agency will have their terms and conditions, as well as method of payment, when it comes to issuing any help for paying rent.
