The Reason KCAF Exists

Kimberley Chance Atkins actively fulfilled many roles during her short time on earth. She was a daughter, a wife, a mother, a teacher and so much more. She displayed a level of generosity, love, and dedication few people get to experience. Kim was the kind of person you wanted to be around. The Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation started as a way to preserve our memory of Kim.

" I will never forget the kindness she showed towards me and the effort she gave more than any teacher to just watch me succeed " - Kelly B.
