Brad Riner Assistance Office

The Brad Riner Assistance Office began as a memorial to Brad Riner, a young member of the church and avid hiker. In 1975, Brad was hiking in the Grand Canyon and passed away while hiking. Brad was 22 years old. The Assistance Office is supported by donations from church members, friends and other groups in the community. In 2016, 2018, & 2019 the fund also received a grant from the City of Glendale’s “From the Heart” program designed to help Glendale Residents. Generous groups like the Girl Scouts and the American Cancer Society have helped with canned good drives for the food bags.

Utility assistance (electric, gas and water) is limited to a one-time $100 payment per household and is available to Glendale and West Valley Residents. The Utility assistance is available limited times throughout the year. Please check with the church on availability.  Small food bags and sack lunches are also available on a first-come, first-served basis. We do not offer rental assistance.
