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.
“The help from the Home was a true miracle. We did not know what we were going to do as Mom’s situation changed so suddenly. Mom’s injury was a really hard time for her and for the family. The help from the Home was a lifesaver. It was such a shock that after such a hard time, good things started to happen.”
The compassion shown in countless ways enabled my parents to live their lives with dignity and security.
“Just celebrated my 90th birthday. Thank you for everything you do for me. I appreciate it more than I can say.”
“I’ve been very blessed in my life. I get to share my talents with others. I get to live in this safe place and if it weren’t for the Masonic Home, I wouldn’t be able to live here where I’ve made a lot of friends and I couldn’t be happier”
“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.”
