It is the goal of the masonic home to reach out statewide financially and non-financially to those eligible applicants in distress through the outreach services programs. The financial programs include long-term financial assistance, short-term financial assistance, children's outreach and creating-a-partnership. The short-term and long-term financial assistance programs provide assistance to eligible adults in three ways: assistance with living expenses to provide the individuals the ability to remain in their own home environment, assistance with medical and other expenses, and assistance with expenses while staying in a facility. The children's outreach program provides assistance to children of eligible individuals by providing financial assistance with medical and other expenses. Assistance is also provided statewide to non-masonic children through the creating-a-partnership program, which is a partnership with missouri masonic lodges and eastern star chapters who identify children in need of school supplies, clothing and other items, and, through that same partnership, projects that help multiple children. The home provided almost $1. 1 million in direct financial assistance in tax year 2013, assisting 107 individuals and masonic children, over 7,600 children and funding 79 projects in the 2013 tax year. The non-financial programs include social services, financial counseling, masonic family cares, and the widows program. These programs are designed to assist masons, their wives, widows or ladies of the eastern star by locating services, educating individuals on basic personal finance skills, helping to keep individuals (oftentimes wives and widows of master masons) connected to their lodge or chapter (or that of their spouse), and by informing individuals of the financial and non-financial services of the home, should they find themselves in need.

This is a wonderful nonprofit organization they have helped several friends that have asked for help. They do more that just give money they provide help in setting up your personal life. Ie: learning how to make a budget and assistance for housing for emergencies. They will also furnish the material needed to make a handicap ramp for those needing it. They are an active helping organization. Thanks to their help several friends found the help they desperately needed.

The Missouri Masonic Home is a fantastic organization that serves the community of Masonic brothers and the causes that they support. They provide assistance to Freemasons and their family in assisted living, offer some relief to those struggling through temporary financial hardships, and provide financial counselling to brothers who need it.

The Home also matches donations to the worthy causes adopted by local Blue Lodges. For example, Gate of the Temple (422) and The Missouri Freerunners sponsor a Rock-and-Ride event every year to raise money for coats for the kids in need of Springfield, MO. The Home has graciously matched our fundraising dollar for dollar and have empowered us to do twice as much good in our community as we otherwise would be able.
