Our History

Coastal Bend Kidney Foundation

For over 43 years, the Coastal Bend Kidney Foundation (formerly the National Kidney Foundation of the Texas Coastal Bend) has provided programs and services vital to kidney disease patients and their families throughout South Texas. In recent years, the rate at which kidney disease has grown in South Texas is exponential and community support has become essential.



Our board of directors includes representatives from renal patients, health professionals, and corporate and community leaders. Our activities are managed on a daily basis by Executive Director, Joann Arevalo, and a contracted support staff.


The Coastal Bend Kidney foundation thanks our strongest supporters who enable us to serve our community.

Mission Statement: To facilitate programs, services and educational opportunities designed specifically to serve the needs of kidney disease patients in our community to include the counties of Nueces, Jim Wells, Live Oak, Bee, Refugio, Aransas, San Patricio, Kleberg, Brooks and Kenedy.
