Who We Are
Filled over 30,000 prescriptions and assisted close to 1580 patients.
he Ozanam Charitable Pharmacy is a non-profit organization that provides life-sustaining medication to persons with severely limited income and resources. We offer the medications free of charge to qualifying individuals.
In the 2014 - 2015 fiscal year, Ozanam Charitable Pharmacy served 1580 individual patients, provided over 30,000 prescriptions which totaled over $1.9 million. We rely on financial donation from grants, foundations, local contracts, corporations, partnerships with United Way and Catholic Charities, fundraising efforts and individuals to purchase generics over $100,000 in generic medication. We also rely on local physicians to donate in-date sample medications and our partners from Direct Relief and Americares to help stock our shelves with medication for qualified individuals who lack access to prescription medication.
Our Access Your Rx program is a patient assistance program dedicated solely to assist patients with obtaining named brand and a limited amount of generic medication through pharmaceutical manufacturer Patient Assistance Programs and private foundations.
Finally, our partnership with Auburn University's Harrison School of Pharmacy helps us to administer the Medication Therapy Management Program where 4 year Pharmacy students assist patients with understanding their treatment plan, disease state and how to take their medication correctly. This 45 minute to one hour program was created and implemented by Pharmacy Students from Auburn University. This past year, the student enrolled and followed up with 128 patients.
We work as part of a team along with those we serve and their physicians.
