Turn To Us' financial assistance fund, Keegan's Kash, is designed to provide financial support to individuals and their families who are experiencing the impact of a major or chronic illness. Many individuals battling serious health issues develop financial instability due to increased medical expenses. To continue receiving treatment for their illnesses, they must ensure medical bills are paid.
Krysta's Miles that Matter
Through our partnership with the Krysta Hankee Memorial Fund, we provided clients who are in active treatment or traveling far distances for appointments with gas gift cards.
Turn To Us believes no one should have to walk this path alone - you are not alone, we are here.
Our goal is to give hope back to those feeling the impact of a major or chronic illness. When an individual or a loved one is diagnosed or has been battling a disease and they say "I don't know where to turn for help" we want them to turn to us.
We are changing the way sick people approach their battle, changing the way the community rallies and shows support, and creating an environment where business and nonprofits come together for a common goal and the betterment of the community.
Turn To Us hosts Girls Night Out, Guys Night Out and Family Nights for clients and community members. The best way to see what we are up to is to follow us on Facebook but we will post them to the Events page.
Turn To Us does not duplicate services - we partner and refer. This section will constantly be updated as we add more resources.
Click RESOURCES for our list of resources broken down into type of assistance and disease. (This will take us a while to add everything so keep checking back.)
Here are some examples of connections: Illness specific help currently available through national organizations, local foundations, and local trust funds. Free, donated clothes from Operation School Wear. Connect individuals who need to travel far for treatment with Patient Airlift Services who offer free flights. Area Agency on Aging, Carbon County Action Committee, and Housing Authority are all familiar with our services. Lists of local food pantries. AND willingness to find information out for you - if we do not know something off hand, we will look into it for you.
We ALWAYS want to learn more! If you are part of an organization that we should know about, please contact us.
Turn to Us is now a wish granting organization with Give Kids The World Village in Florida where children with life-threatening illness and their families are treated to week long, cost free vacations.
Turn to Us is fortunate enough to provide clients with the gift of experiences through in-kind donations from local businesses and community members. Photo sessions, gift certificates to local restaurants, tickets to sporting events, and one night stays at local hotels are just some of the ways we are creating memories for families. For one hour or a day, they can forget their struggles and be a family.

We also just learned about the Sunshine Foundation! Their sole purpose is to answer the dreams of chronically ill, seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children ages three to eighteen, whose families cannot fulfill their requests due to financial strain that the child’s illness may cause.
If you would like more information about how we can help your child, please contact us.
There are only a very few organizations that grant wishes to adults. Guess what GAP Turn To Us has a dream to fill!
