Relief is one of Freemasonry's enduring and relevant values. California Masons take responsibility for the well-being of our brothers, our families, and the community as a whole. We provide relief through philanthropy, community involvement, and delivery of excellent care.
For more than 100 years, the Masons of California have provided assistance and care to support members of our fraternal family through life's transitions.
Today, Masonic Assistance meets California member needs with residential communities for seniors and outreach programs that provide critical services to Masons and their families throughout the state.
The Masonic Homes of California are continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) that offer a vibrant lifestyle and provide multiple levels of care for residents at the Union City campus in Northern California and the Covina campus in Southern California.
The professional staff at both campuses strive for excellence in providing quality care based on Masonic values, helping residents age successfully by living active, meaningful lives and achieving physical, intellectual, social, and spiritual health.
The Masonic Homes of California provides the Masonic Senior Outreach Services (MSOS) program for fraternal family members who prefer to age in their own homes or home communities, yet need help coping with the challenges associated with aging.
MSOS helps identify appropriate local service care providers, develops a comprehensive care plan, and provides financial assistance to those in need.
Masonic Family Outreach Services (MFOS) support California Masons and their families who need help dealing with complex issues, such as the impact of divorce, the stresses of a special needs child, and the negative impacts of economic events.
The Masonic Center for Youth and Families (MCYAF) serves youth ages 4 to 17 struggling with learning, behavioral, and psychological issues. MCYAF's team of experienced clinicians provides comprehensive assessment and treatment services. This integrated, single-point-of-service approach is not available anywhere else in the country.
MCYAF serves Masonic and non-Masonic families throughout the state. Masonic families are always granted priority.

Lodge ambassadors, who act as information officers for lodges, their individual members, and widows, help identify those in need.
