What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Dianne Hagey Dialysis Transportation Program

The Dianne Hagey Dialysis Transportation Program ensures that low-income patients in end-stage renal failure can reach their life-saving dialysis treatments with little to no out of pocket costs. This program provides a financial stipend to dialysis patients living at or below 250% of the federal poverty level, which covers their transportation expenses incurred while traveling to and from dialysis treatments, or to post-transplant appointments or dialysis-related appointments. This program is for patients whom have no insurance which covers transportation, and whom have exhausted all other resources for support.
