Wish List

While unrestricted monetary donations that support our most critical, urgent needs are always the most important gifts that CHNK can receive, we understand that some philanthropists prefer to assist through in-kind donations. Donations of items listed on this page help to keep our operating expenses down, which means more money going directly towards treatment services.

Are you part of a church or school group, neighborhood association, or other organization? Is your office team looking for a way to give back in the community? Supply drives are a fantastic way to help CHNK and provide team-building opportunities for your group in the process! Need ideas for how to organize a supply drive? Contact us at 859.292.4120. A few details to keep in mind:

While we are so grateful for our generous donors, to protect the health and safety of our staff and clients, all donations must be new.

Our residential treatment programs serve children and adolescents between the ages of 7 and 18.

Our outpatient programs serve children and families of all ages.

In-kind donations can be dropped off at the administration building on our Devou Park campus Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Or, you can order the items online and have them shipped to:
