What is B Kind?

**Updated**

Even though the effects of this pandemic are far from over, due to the overwhelming success of B Kind, we will be continuing this type of assistance in the future. Not only will we run this program simultaneously with B Happy, but COVID- impacted expenses are no longer a prerequisite to be considered for relief.

Even in the best of times, living with NF is a struggle for most families, and COVID-19 has likely exacerbated those struggles. While looking to assist families in alternative ways, we created our B Kind Program. B Kind provides relief to NF families struggling with COVID-induced expenses/needs in the form of food assistance, and medical and educational needs.

B Kind has provided assistance to families through food security, a laptop for online schooling, hotel funds for out-of-state surgeries and appointments, school supplies and uniforms, and rent assistance during the pandemic. Meet our B Kind families here!

Who is eligible for a B Kind?

Individuals with a Neurofibromatosis diagnosis (NF1, NF2, Schwannomatosis) living in the Contiguous United States.

How do I nominate a family?

B Kind nominations are a closed referral process.
