We know from experience that families living on the edge never struggle with just one issue; it’s the combination of several problems piling up that prevents families from finding stability and truly thriving. At United Way of the Lakeshore, we partner with FamilyWize to increase the Health and Financial Stability of families in our community. Through their prescription savings card, FamilyWize works to make prescription medications more affordable for all families, so that no one ever has to make the hard choice between the meds they need, and other basics like food or rent.
The FamilyWize free prescription card saves an average of 43% on prescriptions, a savings that can mean the difference between taking a medicine and skipping it. There are no restrictions, no income limits, no fees, and no limit on how many times you can use the card. Since beginning our partnership with FamilyWize in 2007, our community has saved nearly $2,000,000!
