"You have helped far more than you'll ever realize. This computer is a Godsend to us," Mark Strick, father of KINfolk Kid, Seth.

"You have given us a little piece of home. That means we will have our support system back," Debi Henderson, mother of KINfolk Kid, Katy.

"It helps a lot. The hours I spend with the computer are hours I am not concentrating on the pain." Matt Allen, 18, KINfolk Kid

"Being in the hospital is never fun. The computer you lent to me made my stay much more enjoyable." Virginia, 14, Kinfolk Kid

Helping kids since 1999
Free Help To Over 12,000 Children
KINfolk is proud to have helped more than 12,000 children since 1999. As KINfolk enters its 12th year, our computers are in 21 hospitals across the country and the homes of children in 32 states. We currently support two laptop lending programs.

KINfolk Hospital Program
KINfolk provides laptop computers to pediatric hospitals who request our service. Our computers support dial-up, wired and wireless Internet connections. We load them with games, fun sites, instant messaging links, Internet filters, tracking software, etc. We provide Internet access that has been donated by Verizon. We encourage hospitals to assign laptops to children in their rooms so that they have access to the laptop 24 hours a day. Parents and siblings are encouraged to use the laptop as well. If you would like to inquire about our hospital program, please call.

KINfolk Direct Loan Program
With a referral from a health care professional, KINfolk provides a loaned laptop to children who are convalescing at home. The laptops are loaded with essentially the same games and software as our hospital placed computers. Because the computer will be used by just one child, each laptop is tailored to the specific needs of that child. The child may use the computer from both home and hospital. After the proper referral, we deal directly with the child's family, although, in some cases, the child's social worker or hospital volunteer helps with arrangements. When the child no longer needs the laptop, it is returned directly to KINfolk. Please contact us if you know of a child who would benefit from KINfolk's Direct Loan Program.
