Financial Aid

Whatever money we take in from our Donor Closet operations above our expenses is made available to assist persons with MS residing in Washington State who are experiencing short-term financial difficulty. And what we give out is done almost exclusively in collaboration with other non-profit agencies - principally the Northwest Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

To apply for financial assistance from MSHH, first contact the National MS Society and speak to an MS Navigator. They will partner with you to explore all options including assistance from MSHH Donor Closet. MS Navigators help identify solutions and provide access to the resources you are looking for. Call 1-800-344-4867 or www.contactusnmss@nmss.org to connect to an MS Navigator.

Additionally, if it is help with medical or mobility equipment that you are experiencing difficulty obtaining, you may wish to contact our General Manager, Gene Borden, directly at (425) 712-1807. 

 

Support Groups

Currently we host and sponsor three Multiple Sclerosis support groups that serve Snohomish and King counties. Each group meets monthly, providing speakers with information of upcoming events, new medical findings, and providing a great place to meet new and really nice people.
