Those who qualify for Disability and/or SSI, and who are the actual owner(s), (minors cannot be owners) qualify for Tier 2. They must provide their SSI or SSD letter. Dependants must be under the age of 18 years.
Those approved for Tier prices will be allowed a 3 month period before they must reapply for additional aid.
For cases were an Owner may not be able to afford any cost of care, they must meet the requirements for assistance. If they qualify, their case will be presented to the Board members available where a discussion of the case and the status current funds available for Compassion Care will be evaluated. The goal is to be able to help as many families as we can.
