Keys to Supporting Families

Keys to Supporting Families is our newest program, addressing client assistance and nutrition support with baby supplies such as diapers, strollers, formula, and baby food. Through provision of items/supplies we are able teach families about their proper use and allow their finite resources to be used to cover other costs and needs. We are working to add Adopt A Grandparent (intergenerational mentorship) and Parent Coaching programs.

Because of our expertise, we know what families may need and can help them navigate all the “baby stuff” being marketed to them.   Through our partnerships with WIC, local food pantries/distribution sites, and other agencies working on food security, FKHSC has become the “go-to” agency for food assistance for pregnant women and infants.  The Coalition provides specialty formulas, breastfeeding support, and as needed additional nutritional support. 

Our team began providing contactless delivery service because of COVID-19 to ensure families could get the supplies they needed without having to risk exposure to themselves or their children.
