For Kids Foundation:
For Kids Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing financial aid and assistance to children in Northern Nevada with specific unmet needs such as medical, dental, mental health, or educational services for which other resources are insufficient or nonexistent. For example, we have provided the funding for medical consultations, psychological counseling, prescriptions, and eye glasses. We have funded dental care, computers, summer school, and hearing tests.
The Foundation serves as a safety net for children who have “fallen through the cracks” of existing agencies and charitable organizations. Through a network of community service providers and contacts, we look for those children who have a genuine need, but do not qualify for assistance from other resources. Basically, we help those kids no one else does.
