National Multiple Sclerosis Society - Ohio Buckeye Chapter
Direct Financial Assistance
We offer direct assistance to individuals with MS and their families to help access needed services that are not available using other resources. The Financial Assistance Program includes support for:
- *Critical Short Term Needs/Emergency Assistance (unforeseeable one-time emergencies)
- *Durable Medical Equipment
- *Home Vehicle Modifications
- *Home Care and Chore Services
- *Respite Care and Family Support
All requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis in accordance with Society-wide principles, standards and chapter policies. As we work with you on your request, we may also seek other funding options for you. If community resources are available, we will help you access those resources first. We may also request additional information regarding your financial circumstances in order to fully understand your need and how best to assist you.
While we wish we could fund every person in need, and will give your application thoughtful consideration, please know that funds are limited. Completing an application does not guarantee funding. We will process your application as quickly as possible and ask that you not proceed with a purchase until you hear from us. Approved funds are paid directly to the vendor or provider.
We offer free individual consultations by phone or in-person from Certified Financial Planner and CPA, Michale Kucharson.
Michael is available every Thursday from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. In-person meetings are held at the Independence Office ndash 6155 Rockside Rd., Suite 202, Independence, OH 44131.
To schedule an appointment, please contact Mike Kucharson at 216-503-4159.
