How It Works

We connect you to the tools you need to thrive in this period of time with the help of your friends, family and support community. We have partnered with Give InKind, an easy-to-use online tool for organizing support during life’s important and challenging moments.

There is more than one way to show support. Whether it’s a meal drop off for a family with a new baby, rides to the doctor for an ailing friend, child and pet care for someone in the hospital, or a prayer calendar for the loss of a loved one, you and your community can organize it all in one place on Give InKind – for free.

Beyond Basic Needs

Need Help Getting Started?

At Beyond Basic Needs, we connect people in need to technology that makes it easy to manage and get help for basic services including food delivery, cleaning services, transportation and other basic needs at no charge to the individual. We believe these services are imperative to improving the quality of life after a medical event.

Our volunteers can answer any of your questions and help you get started by building an InKind Page.
