Our Story

Faith Community Pharmacy was founded in 2002 as the St. Vincent de Paul Community Pharmacy when Mary Beth Beimesch and Rosana Aydt, two local pharmacists, saw the need for prescription help in the community. For the past twenty plus years, we have been working toward the dream that no one in Northern Kentucky goes without essential medications due to affordability.

Since opening in 2002, we have provided 575,000 100% free prescriptions valued at more than $65 million to over 8,500 friends and neighbors.

Throughout the loosely defined Northern Kentucky region (we currently have patients in 14 counties), we serve anyone who is otherwise unable to afford their prescriptions. Patients whose total household income is at or below 300% of the federal poverty level are eligible to enroll for long term assistance. As a charitable pharmacy, we do not bill patients or insurance companies. Our service is free for clients and for the healthcare system.

Our formulary targets chronic diseases that disproportionately impact low-income individuals, such as diabetes, COPD, asthma, cardiovascular illnesses, mental health, GI/GU and more. We are prevented by law from accepting medication donations from the general public and from distributing controlled substances.

Faith Community Pharmacy relies on funding from private donations, foundation grants, local fiscal courts and fundraising events. Community support is vital to keeping this service available to those in Northern Kentucky who are struggling to afford lifesaving medications..
