Mission Statement

The Alabama Kidney Foundation serves kidney patients by providing financial assistance, education and support services.

The Foundation provides public education to promote organ donation awareness and prevention of kidney disease.

Our Vision is to improve prevention awareness and the individual quality of life of Alabamians affected by kidney disease.

Description

The Alabama Kidney Foundation programs include:

Financial Assistance

The Financial Assistance programs provide patients with much needed help during financially difficult times. The Alabama Kidney Foundation has three separate programs:

Daily Living Needs (DLN) provides assistance to help patients meet basic daily living expenses.

Critical Need Treatment Related Transportation Assistance Program (CNTRTAP) provides transportation assistance to Alabama’s sickest and poorest kidney patients for life-sustaining dialysis treatments. Guidelines for admittance to this program are very strict.

The AL Transportation Assistance Program (ATAP) provides transportation as-sistance to a broader range of patients who, while not qualifying for admittance to CNTRTAP, are still in great need of help with the high cost of travel to dialysis three times a week.

Education

The Education Program addresses three community needs: patient education, public education and organ donation awareness. The Patient Education program includes an array of printed resources and annual Patient Education Conferences. The Public Education program focuses on early detection, targeting high risk groups and promoting organ donation awareness.

Support Services

The Support Services Programs strive to help patients cope with their life circumstances by reaching beyond traditional knowledge-based patient education and helping them develop problem-solving skills, improve self-sufficiency and apply their knowledge in real-life situations. Support Services include pediatric kidney camps, dialysis center activities and providing holiday gifts for dialysis patients.
