For Social Workers
The National Kidney Foundation of Indiana offers emergency financial assistance to kidney patients. Support from NKFI is for those who have exhausted all other options. The NKFI offers support with food insecurity, transportation, utilities, medication, and housing. All applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and are dependent on available funding.
All applications for emergency financial assistance must be submitted by the patient’s social worker.
Thank you for all you do to support Indiana Kidney Patients!
