Texas Kidney Foundation (TKF) is dedicated to the early detection of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Because we know the difficulties that go along with CKD, we use a proactive approach to address the disease. We believe early detection, education, and support will help Texans maintain their quality of life. TKF began because there was a need for patient services in the San Antonio and Rio Grande Valley regions because the local chapter of the nation’s largest kidney foundation closed its doors and left the area. Unfortunately, they didn’t take kidney disease with them.

We know it can be overwhelming finding out you or a loved one has kidney disease. But you are not alone. There is a large network of resources out there that many people don’t realize even exists. Our educational resources, programs and events provide the information you need to make the best decisions for your health and feel empowered.

Community Counselors help people who are uninsured, whose existing coverage does not provide mental health services benefits, who are low-income and lack the money to pay for counseling services, or who would not receive treatment any other way. 

Counseling services are provided by trained, licensed professional counselors, licensed clinical social workers, and licensed marriage and family counselors. Sessions are private and conducted in a safe and familiar environment such as churches and community centers.

The first meeting with a counselor is free. A modest fee based on a sliding fee scale is collected for each follow-up session; however, no one is denied service because they cannot pay.

An appointment must be scheduled in advance.

We provide free testing for high blood pressure, kidney disease, and diabetes across Texas to help detect early-stage kidney disease. Detection at its earliest stages helps to understand what interventions are necessary to encourage a better quality of life and increase knowledge and support in the fight against kidney disease.

Our Texas Kidney Check (TKC) program began in 2013 as a multi-faceted free wellness check. For many of the participants we serve, the TKC is the only healthcare they will receive for the year. With that knowledge in mind, we created an exam that checks hypertension, diabetes, and creatinine in about 15 minutes.
