Children’s Outreach

The Children’s Outreach Program provides financial assistance to the legal dependents of Missouri Master Masons or Missouri female members of the Order of the Eastern Star. This program alleviates the financial strain on parents who may have health insurance, but are struggling to afford co-payments and other medical expenses not covered by insurance. We know there are many children out there who need our help!

In FY 2023, the Masonic Home provided $20,425 through the Children’s Outreach Program.


Assistance Examples

The parent or legal guardian only needs two years of Missouri Masonic membership prior to application to qualify. Legal de­pendents must be 21 years of age or younger or over the age of 21 with a physical or mental disability.

“The assistance is greatly appreciated and my only disappointment is, because of Norma’s Alzheimer’s, I am not able to tell her in greater detail the help she receives from the Masons.  I can assure you that she is grateful and appreciates your help.”
