What is B Kind?

B Kind was formed while our team was looking to assist families in alternative ways after temporarily suspending our B Happy program due to the pandemic. B Kind provides relief to NF families in the form of food assistance and medical and educational needs. While B Kind began as a COVID relief program, COVID- impacted expenses are no longer a prerequisite to be considered for relief.

B Kind has provided assistance to families through food security, rent assistance, laptops and tablets for online schooling, hotel funds for out-of-state surgeries and appointments, school supplies and uniforms, co-pays for surgeries, and more. Meet our B Kind families and learn more about their relief 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. Our committee works with NF doctors, physicians, social workers, and members of the NF community to refer deserving individuals to these programs.
