Meet our Montana Families. Through the generous financial support of our donors and sponsors; the Montana Melin Foundation is able to provide much needed care and assistance to families; we call them our Montana Families – families whose lives were positively affected by the foundation.
“A huge “Thank You!” to the Montana Melin Foundation for the monetary gift, which helped pay for a fence to enclose part of our backyard last fall. Our three children with Down syndrome LOVE to be outside, but they cannot be kept safe for longer periods of time because they tend to wander (run) to unsafe parts of our yard like the garage and pool area. Now, I have the ability to let them play outside as much as they want, and they can still be safe! I’m looking forward to this summer, so we can all enjoy a season of being outside together. Thank you again!”
The Melin Foundation has helped us by providing speech therapy coverage for Parker. Parker receives weekly speech therapy to help him learn how to speak, remember words, and communicate. His co-pays are paid for by the Melin Foundation. This has allowed Parker to continue to receive the therapy he needs. He now says, “moo, duck, arrf (dog), dad, drink, Tuck (little brother)” and many more sounds. He can also sing parts of songs, such as, “all through town” from the Wheels on the Bus. His therapist is amazing and we are blessed to have her. The Melin Foundation is a blessing to us and will forever impact Parker’s life.
In late 2015, my family ended up in a bit of a financial crisis with therapy bills. My son was seeing a speech therapist weekly and a physical therapist and occupational therapist bi-weekly. My insurance stopped covering his therapy sessions mid-year, but we were enrolled in an early intervention entitlement program which was designed to help cover the cost of therapy services for qualified children ages 0-3. My son didn’t turn three until December so we thought we would be covered. The entitlement program refused to cover my son’s therapy services because my insurance had a cap. We were in shock and didn’t know where to turn. We had continued therapy services for several months after my insurance stopped coverage, not knowing the entitlement program would refuse coverage, and we were facing thousands of dollars in therapy expenses. We reached out to the Montana Melin Foundation for assistance with our son’s speech therapy bills. To our surprise, we received a call immediately and they were more than willing to help us! They were caring and understanding and passionate about helping others in need. We are very thankful for their generosity and compassion and I don’t know where we would be without them.
Thank you Montana Melin Foundation!
