MUM Prescription Drug Assistance

No one should have to choose between food and medicine. MUM can provide prescription assistance in emergency situations.

Emergency Prescription Drug Assistance

Often people on limited incomes must decide whether to use their money to pay for prescriptions, pay the rent, utilities, or buy food for their families. MUM can help clients get needed prescriptions in urgent, short-term situations. We can then refer clients to community agencies for long-term prescription needs.  MUM gives financial assistance including seeking additional funding from other public agencies, to help those who cannot afford to pay for their prescription medications.
