May 26, 2010 - Lighthouse of Oakland County was awarded an $8,000 grant from Metro Health Foundation to help uninsured people purchase emergency prescriptions.

Grants are awarded based on criteria including provision of primary, physical health care to individuals who otherwise would not be able to afford treatment; those who work collaboratively to provide comprehensive care; and those who truly "do a lot with a little."

"Lighthouse not only meets, but exceeds, these criteria through their emergency medical assistance programming," said Theresa L. Sondys, senior program officer, Metro Health Foundation.

Many individuals throughout the region do not have health insurance and out-of-pocket prescription costs continue to rise, said Tom Stowell, Lighthouse Emergency Services executive director.
