The situation is heartbreaking. Many Kansas City families and individuals must make a choice between buying groceries… paying rent… or taking care of a medical need. Expensive prescriptions, insurance with significant gaps or total lack of insurance force many of our neighbors to seek short-term emergency medical assistance.
Since 2005, the Medicine Cabinet has spent more than $3.9 million dollars providing more than 21,000 services in the areas of dental emergencies, diabetic supplies, durable medical equipment (including hearing aids), prescriptions and vision care.
With 23 intake sites located on both sides of the state line, in six metro area counties, help is available in any part of Kansas City.
Kansas City’s Medicine Cabinet is a program of Baptist-Trinity Lutheran Legacy Foundation.
