Kids in Need Fund

The Kids In Need Fund (KIN. Fund) was established by the School Health team at Catawba County Public Health to help meet the healthcare needs of school children who fit the fund’s eligibility guidelines. School Health believes the fund is important to the community because healthy children are better learners.

Individuals may be eligible to receive help from the KIN Fund if they are residents of North Carolina who are enrolled in grades K-12, receive free or reduced lunch at school and are not covered by health insurance, Medicaid or NC Health Choice.

The fund covers preventive, diagnostic, evaluation and treatment services; prescribed medications; and limited dental services.

Individuals may make tax deductible donations to the Catawba County Public Health Kids In Need Fund by calling (828) 695-5800 and asking for the School Health Supervisor.
