How To Apply
Elderly PYM members in financial need may apply to the Aging Assistance Granting Group for grants to assist with their basic needs or to make it possible to live in retirement facilities, or to remain in their own homes. They are encouraged to apply as soon as a need is known, by contacting PYM’s Aging Support Coordinator. Applications may also be made on their behalf by family members, their Meeting’s Care Committee, or their retirement facility. These grants to individuals are kept confidential.
‘Pocket money’ grants are also made to residents of PYM Friends retirement facilities who otherwise would have no spending money.
Deadline: no deadlines; apply when assistance is needed.
