In this tough economy, many seniors who live on limited, fixed incomes struggle to make ends meet and provide for their basic necessities.
Some live solely on small Social Security checks, pensions, or other government benefits that barely cover the cost of food, housing, and prescriptions.
MADF’s newest program is designed to help these seniors who are in need of assistance. Seniors can be nominated or apply themselves to receive a small supplemental income from MADF of $100 to purchase personal care and household incidentals. This $100 will come in the form of a prepaid cash debit card to approved seniors monthly. Supplemental funding will be for a 12-month period per approved senior. After that year, seniors will have to reapply for assistance.
