Deep Well helps family afford child's medication

Deep Well

Anne's 8-year-old granddaughter, who needs expensive medicine for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, lives with her and her husband.

The child's grandfather was called to pick her up from school because she was so disruptive.

No one had registered the child with Medicaid, which normally would cover the medication.

Deep Well paid for the prescription once and told the grandparents to reapply for Medicaid. The child went back to school.

Deep Well provides a broad range of social services for poor working families, the disabled, the sick and the elderly.
