Target demographics: KHAKY serves kidney disease patients of all ages, races, income levels and genders in more than 70 counties of Kentucky.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 780

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: assist with a kidney disease screening, work a "Life Is Cool" educational program for 4th and 5th grade students, input data from a screening, help serve lunch at a patient picnic

Geographic areas served: Kentucky

Programs:

Over 300 dialysis patients receive a variety of nutritional supplements through KHAKY each year.  Renal dietitians select a product that will meet the patient's needs and that the patient will enjoy taking.  The dietitian places orders each month for the patients at the clinics they serve.  Through negotiated contracts with manufacturers, KHAKY is able to provide the products at more than 50% below average retail prices.  Those patients who qualify financially can receive up to $10/month in product at no cost.  Nutritional intervention has been clinically proven to reduce hospitatilizations, speed healing and improve the overall health of dialysis patients. 

Mission:
KHAKY sesrves kidney disease patients and their families, increases awareness and early detection of chronic kidney disease and promotes organ donation.
Results:
Over 350 dialysis patients participate in our Nutritional Supplement purchasing system, with nearly half of those receiving up to $10/month in free product.
KHAKY has screened an average of 400 individuals/year for indicators of possible kidney disease.
More than 30 patients per year receive emergency financial assistance.
