MY Meds Medication Assistance and Health Ministry
Caring for our neighbors in the Toe River Valley

About Us

Our History and Mission
Established in May 2001, MY Meds is the only medication assistance and health resource ministry serving all of Mitchell and Yancey Counties and underserved portions of Avery and Madison Counties. MY Meds is a local non-profit outreach whose mission is to embrace its neighbors in need with love and compassion.

MY Meds has one full-time employee, Coordinator Paula Smith, a resident of Green Mountain, NC.

Each year, we invest more than 2,000 hours helping our neighbors in the Toe River Valley. Over the course of a year, MY Meds will invest 8 hours working with each client, e.g. applications, telephone calls, correspondence, follow up, and consultation.


The MY Meds Board is made up of volunteers and leaders from Mitchell and Yancey Counties who are aware of their communities’ needs. They contribute time and resources and are instrumental in raising necessary funds for the operating budget.
