Notes from the Nonprofit

We have a fabulous group of survivors and caregivers that we work with throughout the year. Many of our survivors volunteer at health fairs and other events. If you are a survivor please join us for many of the "members" events and meet others affected by stroke to share your stories. Please visit our website at www.strokekyin.org to learn more about us

Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    We strive to educate thousands each year on the warning signs and risks of stroke. We would like survivors to feel a sense of belonging with our group, and be available to anyone that has suffered from a stroke
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    We participate in various health events throughout the year, as well as produce our own Stroke Awareness Day Health Fair each May. Our speakers bureau consists of many highly trained stroke coordinators, nurses, doctors and survivors, who present at several workplaces and companies year round. We are branching out more to the southern Indiana area this year.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    We purchase and distribute (free of charge) several thousand brochures and informational pamphlets on stroke each year. We have many survivors who volunteer with our organization, and we are reaching many more through social media. We have formed a southern Indiana committee to reach more people with education.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Phone calls received each week give us insight as to the needs of the community. Talking with the public at various health events helps us understand how uneducated they are about what a stroke really is, as well as its risks, warning signs and prevention methods. The southern Indiana committee has noticed a huge need for education in this area on stroke.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    Since our inception in 1999, we have added over 1000 people to our contact list, we have increased our presence in the area ten-fold. The southern Indiana committee has several plans for the coming years, such as creating educational packets for discharged stroke patients, and producing a large health event which includes Q&A and break out topic disucssions.

Funding Needs

we provide stroke survivor camp scholarship money each year for annual survivor camp, so donations would help fund more attendees. We also need stroke educational materials and books for our resource library. General operating funds help us to continue our mission
