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 2018, the Masonic Home provided $926,513 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 am writing to thank you for the assistance you are giving my mother. As I was thinking of how I could best express my gratitude, I had to conclude that there just are no words which can truly express the immensity of the gratitude I feel. Your help is the most generous, kind, thoughtful gift my family has ever received.”
“I love what the Masonic Home has provided for me. Without their assistance I wouldn’t have this lovely apartment or get to here I feel safe and comfortable.”
“Just celebrated my 90th birthday. Thank you for everything you do for me. I appreciate it more than I can say.”
“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.”
“Knowing my mom is well taken care of has given the family a peace of mind. I feel that we are part of a team with the Masonic Home and that my mom is being well taken care of. She is comfortable, content and cared for. I have no idea where mom would be right now if the assistance that the Home provides for had not been available.”
