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 2017, the Masonic Home provided $964,117.07 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.

The compassion shown in countless ways enabled my parents to live their lives with dignity and security.
“You were there when emergencies arose, such as when dental work was needed, and so much more. The visits from case managers and staff were welcomed interactions that helped to make my parents feel valued and connected to something larger, which was so important to them as their world grew smaller.
“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’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.”
“I have the feeling of having been blessed by angels. You who are members of the Board probably do not think of yourselves as angels, but I do. Many blessing to you all.”
