Long-Term Financial Assistance
The Long-Term Financial Assistance Program assists eligible senior adults who do not have income or assets available to cover the costs of their care needs and living expenses. Individuals may receive assistance whether they reside in their homes, apartments, independent living facilities, or assisted living facilities.
In Fiscal Year 2020, the Masonic Home provided $917,816 of long-term financial assistance.
Examples of monthly assistance include:
Help with the cost of assisted and independent living
Quality of life items in a skilled facility
Essential household bills and expenses
Individuals who qualify for long-term financial assistance are senior Missouri Masons, their wives or widows, and Eastern Star ladies in good standing.
Applicants must complete an application to demonstrate a financial need.
I remember my father once telling my mother that she didn’t need to worry about their future. What a blessing it was for them to know that all of you were there for them. We will be ever grateful for the work of the Masonic Home on behalf of our parents. Thank you all so very much for your role in making their lives better.”
“Just celebrated my 90th birthday. Thank you for everything you do for me. I appreciate it more than I can say.”
“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.”
“I’ve always felt that a person ought to give back not only to his country and community, but also to the organizations that have done so much for them”
“I’m so proud of my Masonic affiliation and the help I receive. My first husband was a Mason, my second husband was a Mason and that’s the only way I would have it. They were such good men. My sons were in DeMolay and I was in the Order of the Eastern Star. I wish more people knew about the Masonic Home of Missouri and how much help they have given me.”
