Mission Statement

For Kids Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing financial aid and assistance to children in Northern Nevada. We fund children's specific, unmet needs such as medical, dental, mental health, or educational services for which other resources are insufficient or nonexistent.

Description

For Kids Foundation provides financial assistance to obtain critical products/services for those children who "fall through the cracks" and are not eligible for assistance through other programs. Bottom Line: We help the kids no one else will.

History: Despite Nevada’s many agencies and organizations dedicated to helping children, there always seems to be that one child who does not meet the criteria for a specific program or service. The Foundation began in 2003 as the charitable arm of Kids Behavioral Health (KBH), a corporation providing residential and day treatment programs for troubled youth.

$510,000 total Program Awards Paid Since 2010 (as of 2/12/19):
Adaptive Devices, Beds/Bedding, Bicycles, Car Seats, Clothing, Dental/Orthodontic Services, Equine Therapy, Eyeglasses/Contacts, Laptop, Computers, Insurance Deductibles, Medical Treatments, Prescription Medications, Psychological Evaluations, Shoes, Summer Camp, Text-to-Speech Software, Travel Expense, Tutoring
