WHAT WE DO

 

      REFERRALS

      Referrals are accepted from various sources.   Most come from the Town of Kent's

      director of social services/Municipal Agent for the Elderly, but they also come from

      local clergy, school and hospital social workers and other medical and social services

      providers. All grant requests are reviewed by the three-member KCF Grant Committee.

      Every grant is strictly confidential - a policy that is especially important in our small town.    

 

 

      GRANTS

      Grants are paid directly to service providers or vendors - fuel companies, utilities,

      landlords, etc.  The Fund is available after other sources, such as fuel banks, government

      entitlements and special programs are utilized. Types of grants include:

 

        Medical expenses including prescription medications

        Heating fuel

        Home and auto repair

        Electric and telephone bills

        Wheelchair and medical appliance purchases

        Housing emergencies and rental assistance

        Scholarship assistance to Camp Kent

        Scholarship assistance for the After School Program at Kent Center School

 

     

 

 

"I'm writing to tell you how grateful I  am for the KCF  grant for medical  expenses. I was really in crisis and  without  your help I don't know what  the resolution  would have been.  Thank you!"     - grant recipient
