Prescribing Hope Lockup With Tagline

Saving Lives Since 2006

In 2006, SVDP collaborated with Class 27 of Leadership Cincinnati to launch the Charitable Pharmacy. Since its inception, it has been revolutionizing pharmaceutical care and helping vulnerable residents of Hamilton, Butler, Clermont, and Warren Counties access free prescription medications. The Charitable Pharmacy has filled over 660,000 prescriptions worth more than $90MM—at all no cost to patients.

Prescribing Hope

The Charitable Pharmacy is launching the Prescribing Hope Campaign to directly address the challenges neighbors face with their prescription medications. The Prescribing Hope Campaign will improve access to care for neighbors in need, expand pharmaceutical programs and operations, and enhance the long-term sustainability of the Charitable Pharmacy. Most importantly, this campaign will improve the health and well-being of patients and save lives.

Learn more about this transformative campaign through the campaign booklet or video, both found below.

Impact on Patients: Jennie’s Story

Each month when Jennie picks up her prescriptions at SVDP Charitable Pharmacy, she goes back to her car and cries. Her gratitude is overwhelming because of the help she receives at the Charitable Pharmacy.

Jennie is 67 years old and has worked all her life. But even working full-time and now having Medicare, she cannot afford her prescriptions. Jennie’s prescription copays total nearly $1,000 per month. During the past decade, she has withdrawn $20,000 from her retirement account just to be able to afford her medications.

Since becoming a patient at the Charitable Pharmacy, Jennie has been able to fill her prescriptions at no cost. This has improved her life and stabilized her finances.

However, living in Amelia in Clermont County, Jennie drives upwards of 40 minutes each way each month to fill her prescriptions. When the Charitable Pharmacy opens up a third location in Milford, this will cut her time nearly in half.

 “I’ve been praying for better access,” Jennie admits, “because it will be so much easier for myself and many others who need help.”

Now, thanks to the Prescribing Hope Campaign, Jennie’s prayer will be answered and others like Jennie will have better access to their life-saving medications.
