The KHF is a nonprofit organization that was founded in May 2015 as a legacy for Kyle Hyland who died by suicide in December 2014, two weeks before his 17th birthday.
In addition to maintaining a teen center in Benicia as well as providing mental health programs and other services to youth, the goal of the Kyle Hyland Foundation is to prevent any other family in Benicia from experiencing the pain and the loss that Kyle’s family suffered.
The mission of the Kyle Hyland Foundation for Teen Support is to provide charitable and educational support to teens by offering mental health programs and other services, and to maintain a center where teens can be provided emotional support through mentoring, counseling music, and art.
