National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater New England Chapter
The Kelly Packowski MS Foundation and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society,.Greater New England Chapter are pleased to announce that through their combined efforts, people in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont who have MS and are in need of financial assistance for home-care and home modifications, can receive funding through one application process. Thanks to the two organizations recently formed partnership, eligible people with MS can receive up to $3,000 for home-care or respite care and $4,500 for home modifications. Both organizations realized that there was a need in the community to provide a more robust combined funding source to facilitate the process and increase the reach of their programs. Interested parties should contact the Chapter office at 1-800-493-9255.
