Request for Financial Panel Members

Outreach Program Seeks Assistance to Provide Direction for those in need of Financial Guidance.

A substantial number of individuals who contact the Masonic Outreach Program are in need of basic budgeting advice and guidance that will provide them with the skills necessary to effectively manage their finances. Many of these individuals are not in the position to be able to afford such services. The Masonic Outreach Program is in the preliminary stages of coordinating a panel of professionals who will be available to give direction to distressed Brethren, their spouses, widows and others who need assistance in the area of budgeting and or other related services at minimal or no cost.

Individuals wanting more extensive financial services, with the ability to afford such services, may also refer to the program for resources.

How Will it Work? Callers would contact the Outreach Office where they would be screened and, if determined appropriate, would be referred to a professional on the panel. The professional would decide if they want to work with individuals on a case by case basis.

What Can YOU Do? Initially, we need professionals who are members of the fraternity, Eastern Star or family and friends of the Masonic Villages to seriously consider becoming a charter member of this new and exciting venture to serve those in need of these services.

A committee will be formed of volunteers wanting to help shape the program, including creating guidelines and operating procedures.
