“Medical debt destroys the financial stability of large segments of America’s most vulnerable communities: the sick, the elderly, the poor, and veterans. It also targets the middle class, driving many families who are barely getting along into poverty. Medical debt isn’t the result of bad decisions. It’s a debt of necessity.” RIP Medical Debt
Join us for an informational meeting to discuss the possibility of forgiving $39 million of medical debt in Lancaster County. We will be partnering with RIP Medical Debt, an established, national organization that has been buying and forgiving medical debt since 2014. They have provided us with the numbers for Lancaster County: $39 million of debt available for purchase for $39,000. Please bring your questions and concerns as we brainstorm how churches in Lancaster County can significantly impact our neighbors in such a practical way!
If you are unable to attend this meeting but interested in the initiative, please contact us. We will share the outcomes of the conversation with everyone interested in seeing this accomplished in Lancaster or interested in copying this work in other locations.
Venue: Parish Resource Center
