Almoner Program

We Provide Hands-On Care To Scots In Need

The Almoner Program continues the work of the Society's original mission to support those of Scottish birth or descent who are in need. Through this program, financial assistance is provided to the elderly, the terminally ill, the disabled, individuals, families and children in crisis.

The Almoner's Committee works with social service organizations to identify recipients. Stipend recipients receive financial assistance in addition to personal support from our social worker and committee members.

The Almoner's Committee continues its daily commitment to providing hands-on care to Scots in need.
